Another DePuy ASR™ Hip Case Set for Trial in September 2013
Since the withdrawal of the DePuy ASR™ (Articular Surface Replacement) hip device from the market in August 2010, thousands of lawsuits have been filed against Johnson & Johnson alleging injuries to persons who had the defective device implanted.
Two cases have previously been tried before a jury — the first trial in California state court, which resulted in an $8.3 million verdict for plaintiffs, and the second trial earlier this year in Illinois state court where the jury found in favor of Johnson & Johnson. Now, along with a New Jersey state trial set for October 21, 2013, a trial has been scheduled for September 9, 2013 in the Multi-District Litigation (MDL) pending in federal court before the Honorable Judge David A. Katz. Judge Katz is currently managing nearly 8,000 DePuy ASR™ hip replacement lawsuits that were consolidated and have been pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio since late 2010 (MDL No. 2197).
