After a California court of appeals upheld a $5.5 million mesh verdict against C.R. Bard in November, the U.S District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia designated 60 vaginal mesh cases as “Miniwave 1” cases.
These 60 cases will be tried in federal district courts around the country. After the Southern District of West Virginia Court’s order, these 60 cases will be transferred or remanded to the appropriate federal district court for trial at the conclusion of pre-trial proceedings.
Thousands of women have suffered serious complications from vaginal mesh. Over 10,000 mesh lawsuits are currently pending against C.R. Bard in the Multidistrict Litigation in the Southern District of West Virginia.
