DEPUY ASR UPDATE (January 19, 2013)
The Miller Firm is working diligently on your case. As of January 18, it was reported that five people close to the DePuy ASR MDL 2197 litigation confirmed settlement discussions. You should know that last night the leadership of the Executive Committee, emailed the following statement to the reporters: “The lawyers and leadership in the cooperating jurisdictions are working for the benefit of the 35,000 United States patients who have this recalled medical device. We have reviewed some 50 million pages of documents that have been produced and have taken over 50 depositions. At this time we have a significant number of trials set with the company and we are primarily focusing our efforts on trial preparation. Any comment relating to settlement that does not come from leadership, the Court, or from the company itself, is speculative and uninformed.”
The first ASR trial in the country will start in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Next month, another trial is set to start in Illinois and the Miller Firm has a trial date set for June in Maryland. Also, the federal litigation has trials in May and July. We are working hard to compensate you for the injuries you have endured and appreciate your patience in this process.
