Bellwether Trials Scheduled in Ethicon Hernia Mesh Litigation
After numerous litigation delays, beginning in June 2021, bellwether trials involving Ethicon Physiomesh are slated to begin. The lawsuits concern a medical device called hernia mesh manufactured by Ethicon, part of the Johnson & Johnson Medical Device Companies. Hernia mesh products have been linked to dangerous side-effects such as infection, intestinal blockage, migration, and hernia reoccurrence—at times, necessitating additional surgeries or removal of the device.
The judge presiding over the Ethicon Physiomesh litigation has selected four cases (out of the over 3,200 in total) to go before a jury. The first bellwether trial is expected to last two to three weeks, followed by another consolidated trial in September.
