DePuy Pinnacle Lawsuit Update: Federal Court Orders DePuy to Produce Data from Sales Practices Investigation, Rottenstein Law Gr

The firm is actively filing DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits on behalf of individuals who allegedly suffered metallosis, premature device failure and other serious complications related to the metal-on-metal hip implant.

(PRWEB) May 22, 2013

Pretrial proceedings for federal DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits are progressing. On May 15 a judge for the Pinnacle multidistrict litigation ordered Johnson & Johnson’s DePuy Orthopaedics unit to produce monitoring reports related to a federal investigation into the company’s medical device sales practices, according to court documents. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, a DePuy Pinnacle law firm, maintains, which has more information on the metal-on-metal hip implant and how to file a lawsuit if appropriate.

Plaintiffs’ lawyers filed the motion to compel the release of the monitoring reports for use in the lawsuits pending in federal courts, according to court documents (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. Pinnacle Hip Implant Product Liability Litigation; MDL-2244, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas). A 2007 agreement and the monitoring reports were the result of a U.S. Attorney’s office’s criminal investigation into allegations that DePuy offered kickbacks to surgeons to use its hip replacement products.

DePuy Execs May Be Asked to Testify in the Pinnacle Hip Replacement Lawsuit Trial

As the ASR bellwether trial in 2013 draws near, DePuy officials are to be summoned to give their testimonies during the court hearings, says an article from the medical website. However, it is also possible that the same is required from DePuy officials in the upcoming 2014 DePuy Pinnacle trial. There are approximately 1,700 pending Pinnacle hip lawsuits that have been consolidated. Surgeons have predicted that the number of Pinnacle hip cases will advance with ASR hip devices. Ten percent of the Pinnacle hip devices may potentially fail over the next two or three years.
