Lawyers at Beasley Allen continue to evaluate and file Mirena claims involving migration with uterine wall perforation. Mirena, which is manufactured and sold by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc., is an intrauterine device (IUD) that is inserted into the uterus to release hormones to prevent pregnancy. Although Bayer has promoted Mirena as being safe and effective, more than 60,000 complaints have been made to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about Mirena since it was approved for use in the United States in December 2000.
Hundreds of Mirena lawsuits are currently pending in the Mirena multidistrict litigation (MDL), which is being presided over by the Judge Cathy Seibel in the United States District Court Southern District of New York. Roger Smith, who is in our firm’s Mass Torts section, serves on the Plaintiffs Steering Committee (PSC), was appointed by Judge Seibel. The PSC for the Mirena MDL is charged with overseeing the Mirena litigation as it progresses through the MDL/federal court system. The next court conference is scheduled this month and will be held September 26th and it will address litigation issues, including the discovery process. We are extremely pleased with the progress being made so far in the Mirena MDL.
In addition to the Mirena MDL, other litigation is pending in state courts across the country as well. More than 173 Mirena lawsuits have been filed in state courts in New Jersey, which is where Bayer is headquartered. The Supreme Court of New Jersey designated all pending and future litigation involving Mirena as multi-county litigation and assigned the cases to Judge Brian R. Martinotti of the Superior Court for Bergen County. The next case management conference there is set for the 25th of this month.
