Lawsuits against three major vaginal mesh device manufacturers have been centralized in multidistrict litigations in West Virginia. Over 100 cases involving a variety of products made by American Medical Systems, Inc., Boston Scientific Corp., and Ethicon Inc. will be consolidated and transferred to federal court in the Southern District of West Virginia. Litigation against a fourth manufacturer, Bard, over its Avaulta vaginal mesh product has already been consolidated in the same jurisdiction. Chief Judge Joseph R. Goodwin will oversee the four MDLs. Hundreds of cases are also pending in state courts around the country, and several bellwether trials in state court are set for in the coming months.
