CHARLESTON, W.Va., April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- MT Services LLC, a Lawsuit Settlement News Reporting Company which operates lawsuitsettlementnews.com, reports today that U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin issued a court order for another joint conference status meeting in hopes to resolve more than 70,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits against seven different mesh manufacturers who are involved in multidistrict litigations under him. The TVM multidistrict litigations (MDL) have been going on for some time, and Judge Goodwin has ordered another joint conference status meeting in effort to try to resolve the claims. The pretrial order was issued by U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin on April 2nd, according a court document, and the meeting is to occur on June 2nd with the following listed defendant representatives: American Medical Systems, Bard Avaulta, Boston Scientific, Coloplast, Cook, and Johnson & Johnson's Ethicon ((1) Bard/TSL & Sofradim MDL 2187; (2) Boston Scientific MDL 2326; (3) Ethicon MDL 2327; (4) Coloplast MDL 2387; (5) Cook MDL 2440).
The pending lawsuits claim that different transvaginal mesh devices – or bladder slings – manufactured by the seven TVM manufacturers involved have caused serious injuries and complications for the women plaintiffs who have filed suits. The devices were initially implanted to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and female stress urinary incontinence (SUI). However, when the devices caused complications, it resulted in the high number of lawsuits against the seven different mesh manufacturers. Due to the high number of lawsuits, they were consolidated into multidistrict litigations in order to hopefully resolve the suits as quickly and efficiently as possible with large scale settlements. The proceedings will be taking place under U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin in Charleston in the U.S. District Court, Southern District, of West Virginia.
Chris Janish, CEO of MTS, commented on the recent court order for the meeting, "The size of this litigation, and all the various manufacturers, is greatly affecting the ability to settle all the claims. The fact that the judge is pushing to get this conference meeting is a good sign that hopefully reasonable settlement values and settlement amounts can be agreed upon so that so many women can get some financial relief from their injuries."

Lawsuit Settlement News urges any women who are having complications with any of the transvaginal mesh products or bladder or pelvic slings that were implanted in the last five years to seek immediate legal consultation to determine if they may have a potential claim and are eligible for compensation. Time may be limited to do so as more manufacturers settle the claims against them. Settlements and jury verdicts in other cases with serious side effects and multiple revision surgeries have netted some plaintiffs settlements in the $500K range. In order to obtain compensation, you must file a timely lawsuit with the assistance of a mesh law firm.
