The Atrium C-Qur Hernia Mesh lawsuits centralized in 2017 under MDL 2753 in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire include all types of C-Qur line of polypropylene surgical mesh. Hon. Judge Landya B. McCafferty is presiding over the Atrium Medical Corp. litigation where more than 20 lawsuits are pending for trial.
The court convened a regular monthly status conference on March 8 to discuss bellwether case management order, plaintiffs jurisdictional requests, deposition dates for plaintiffs’ requested Rule 30(b)(6) deponent, defendants’ privilege log, and location of the deposition of Reinhard Mayer primarily.
Plaintiffs allege that the C-Qur mesh causes an inflammatory response that may result in improper fixation, bowel adhesions, and other severe complications. Claims also include that Atrium failed to provide appropriate safety warnings to the medical community and patients in spite of being aware of the alleged design defects.
