Mesh Medical Device News Desk, May 31, 2017 ~ So far this 2017, the litigation in transvaginal mesh cases filed around the country seems to be picking up steam.

This after a long lull in proceedings.

Judge Joseph Goodwin had hoped to have the massive Mass Tort in his West Virginia court wrapped up by March. He had let out a long leash hoping both sides would come to the settlement table, but no progress was made that was evident to the patient waiting plaintiffs.

So here is a schedule of transvaginal mesh cases ahead that MND has been able to ascertain. Please add your case here if we have missed any.

Trial locations are in various state courts as well as Bergen Co. New Jersey, Philadelphia, PA and Los Angeles.

There are 182 transvaginal mesh cases awaiting trial in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, naming defendants, Johnson & Johnson/ Ethicon Boston Scientific and Bard.
