As the number of lawsuits mount in New Jersey against Stryker over its recalled Rejuvenate Hip Stem and ABG II Modular Hip Stem components, the New Jersey Supreme Court has ruled that all cases in the state should and will be consolidated into a “multicounty litigation” in Bergen County Superior Court before Judge Brian R. Martinotti, the Rottenstein Law Group reports after reviewing court documents (New Jersey MCL-296).

The Jan. 15 decision of New Jersey’s high court follows deliberations in Fall 2012 over how to deal with a growing number of lawsuits in several counties. According to the court order establishing the MCL,* the consolidation is necessary to speed up pretrial proceedings for current and future Stryker Rejuvenate Hip Stem and ABG II Modular Hip Stem lawsuits.
