Shortly after the Cisson trial, C.R. Bard reached a settlement in the second bellwether case in multidistrict litigation (MDL) over the company’s defective vaginal mesh implants. This came less than a week after the $2 million verdict in the trial mentioned above. The settlement took place on the first day of the scheduled trial before a jury was selected.
Ms. Queen was implanted with an Avaulta Solo Anterior Synthetic Support System. The device left her deformed, caused her significant mental and physical pain, and caused her other problems. The case was before U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin. The terms of the agreement are confidential.
The third bellwether trial in the litigation, involving plaintiff Linda Rizzo, is slated to begin in early October. A fourth bellwether trial is scheduled to start in November. Ms. Queen is represented by Henry Garrard III, Gary Blasingame, James Matthews III, Andrew Hill III and Josh Wages, lawyers with Blasingame Burch Garrard & Ashley, a firm located in Athens, Ga. The case is Queen et al. v. C.R. Bard Inc., in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.
