Johnson and Johnson Transvaginal Mesh Marketing Settlement

Share

West Virginia “has reached a $3.9 million settlement with Johnson & Johnson in a lawsuit over the company’s marketing of a surgical mesh used to treat pelvic conditions in women, state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey announced Monday.” Morrisey “filed a consumer protection case against the company in September, saying it misrepresented the risks and effectiveness of the medical implant.” The FDA “stopped sales of the synthetic mesh in April 2019 after years of injury reports as well as tens of thousands of lawsuits from women who said they had bleeding, severe pain and infection from the products, also called transvaginal mesh.” The settlement involves no admission of liability or misconduct for Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Ethicon.
