On September 20, the Honorable David Katz presiding over the DePuy bellwether case, Ann McCracken v. DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., et. al., Case No. 11 dp 20485, continued the trial 90 days from September 24, 2013 “in the interest of justice”. According to the Order, the Judge continued the trial so that the parties could complete the scheduling of expert witnesses and pretrial discovery.
Approximately 93,000 DePuy ASR were subject to a global recall and over 10,000 cases are pending in California and the MDL. Potentially thousands more wait on the horizon. Thousands of hip implant recipients have experienced pain, dislocation, fracture, toxic poisoning, and were forced to have revision surgery to remove the defective DePuy ASR.
The lawyers at the Brandi Law Firm are representing a number of people with cases pending against the manufacturer of the DePuy ASR in the California JCCP, the MDL, and people who were injured by the DePuy Pinnacle.
