First Bellwether Trial in Federal DePuy ASR Lawsuit Litigation Scheduled to Begin after Two-Week Postponement

The first federal trial for a DePuy ASR hip lawsuit (http://www.depuy-asr-hip-recall.com/) is scheduled to begin Tuesday in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports.

According to an Order issued September 6th by the federal judge overseeing the litigation, the trial is set to commence on September 24, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. after being postponed for two weeks pending additional discovery and further consideration of legal matters relevant to the case. The start date for this DePuy ASR hip lawsuit, which was selected to serve as the proceeding’s first bellwether trial in July, had originally been scheduled for September 9th.

Included in this case are claims filed by a Rochester, New York woman whose alleged injuries caused by the DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip replacement forced her to undergo revision surgery to remove the device. (McCracken v. DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., et al., No. 1:11-dp-20485)
Court records indicate that over 8,000 claims filed by individuals affected by the DePuy ASR recall are now pending in the federal litigation underway in the Northern District of Ohio
