Our firm has been heavily involved over the past year in the shoulder pain pump litigation. We have been working with Williams, Love, O’Leary & Powers, a very good law firm in Portland, Oregon. Jointly our firms represent over sixty individuals who have suffered the death of the cartilage in their shoulder joint as the result of the use of a shoulder pain pump. A petition for an MDL was filed and heard in 2008. While at that time there were five pending pain pump cases in the country, there are now several hundred pain pump cases pending all over the United States. A new petition for an MDL has been filed.
While some of the Defendants have consented to the formation of an MDL, others have objected. The issue was set for hearing in San Diego at the end of March, but this issue was sent to the printer before the court ruled. Although there are several manufacturers of pain pumps, the formation of an MDL would streamline the discovery and the coordination could help move this litigation along faster in the long run.
