DePuy aims to dismiss patient lawsuit against recalled hip implant

December 4, 2012 by MassDevice staff

Johnson & Johnson subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics seeks to dismiss a patient lawsuit against its ASR XL metal-on-metal hip implants on the grounds that the company warned of metal erosion and the potential need for revision surgery.
Lawyers for Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics asked a California judge to file a summary judgment to close a lawsuit accusing the device maker of negligence in manufacturing its ASR metal-on-metal hip implants.

Effective on January 1, 2013, J&J and DePuy issued a motion to dismissing accusations that the companies are on the hook for negligence, defects and recall management issues that plaintiff Loren Kransky filed in December 2010, just weeks after DePuy originally pulled its ASR hip replacement and resurfacing devices off the shelves
