Vaginal Mesh Helpline Announces TransVaginal Mesh Lawyers Seek Sanctions Against Ethicon

Vaginal Mesh Helpline is the nations leading source for connecting women injured by the Pelvic Mesh Systems to transvaginal mesh lawyers.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA, USA, December 11, 2013 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Lawyers for women suing Ethicon in (MDL – 2327 IN RE: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation) for complications caused by transvaginal mesh have filed a motion claiming that Ethicon intentionally lost or damaged evidence important to the victims filing lawsuits against Ethicon, a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary.
Pelvic mesh lawyers asked Judge Goodwin, the judge overseeing the lawsuits, to impose severe sanctions on Ethicon for “systematic and continual” evidence destruction over the past decade.
It appears that Ethicon lost 600 pounds of documents sent to it from Medscand, the original manufacturer of one of the mesh implants women are filing Ethicon mesh lawsuits for.
Apparently a hold was placed on certain mesh documents from 2003 onward. This litigation hold stipulated that certain communications and data should be held for future pelvic mesh trial proceedings. In 2010 Ethicon erased the hard drive of its former president, Renee Selman, who oversaw the company’s key policies and developments regarding the Prolene mesh from 2005 to 2010.

Ethicon denies that it intentionally destroyed important evidence to the mesh trials.

Transvaginal Mesh Lawyers Seek Severe Sanctions

Vaginal mesh lawyers have requested that Judge Goodwin impose sanctions on Ethicon. They want the judge to declare a default judgment in favor of the mesh victims.
They also ask that the judge bar the defendants from using the “learned intermediary defense,” in which manufacturers argue that they fulfilled their duty of care to consumers by educating a “learned intermediary,” such as a doctor, about their product.
