On March 5, 2015, a California jury ordered Johnson & Johnson ordered to pay $5.7 million in a California transvaginal mesh trial. As a last-ditch effort, Ethicon lawyers are making an attempt to appeal the $700,000 in punitive damages.
Ethicon issued the following statement about the appeal for punitive damages:
The evidence showed the TVT Abbrevo midurethral sling was properly designed and Ethicon acted appropriately and responsibly in the research development and marketing of the product.
Although the Plaintiff Coleen Perry and her lawyer may have won claims their main arguments it could be a long appeal process. Ethicon has only paid out 4 settlements (including this one) so they have experience and financing that will prolong their litigation efforts.
