DePuy ASR lawsuits are progressing in federal courts. The plaintiffs whose case will be the first to go to trial of those consolidated with other federal cases for pre-trial proceedings have filed opposition to a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics motion in May to apply the punitive damages rules of the plaintiffs’ home states. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, a DePuy ASR law firm, manages a website at http://www.depuyhiprecallnewscenter.com that features ASR updates and more information on the variety of alleged side effects over which implant recipients are filing metal-on-metal hip lawsuits.
DePuy filed the motion this spring, according to court documents for MDL-2197 (U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio). Plaintiffs Faye Dorney-Madgitz and her husband filed the opposition on May 30. Their trial is set to begin on Sept. 9.
