LOS ANGELES, March 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that a recent announcement was made stating that a $5.7 million verdict was reached by a California jury against Johnson & Johnson's Ethicon subsidiary over their Gynecare TVT Abbrevo vaginal mesh device. Coleen Perry, the woman plaintiff in the case, said the mesh began to erode in her body, causing pain that may last the rest of her life. She was awarded $700K in compensatory damages and $5MM in punitive damages. The verdict was reached in Kern County, California after more than three days of deliberations when the jurors found that J&J's Ethicon acted with gross negligence. This was the fourth win for plaintiffs against Ethicon relating to their transvaginal mesh devices, however, Ethicon did win one trial in federal court in West Virginia. Currently, there is also a federal trial in progress in the U.S. District Court of West Virginia. Seven different multidistrict litigations (MDL) for filed cases against several different mesh manufacturers are under U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin.
