First trial over IVC Filter in favor of the defendant

  • First trial over IVC Filter in favor of the defendant

After a three week trial, the federal jury ruled in favor of Cook Medical in what was the first trial over the significant injuries caused by their Celect IVC filter brand. The jury failed to find the company at fault for the plaintiffs' injuries that included migration and perforation of the vena cava.

All Cook IVC filter lawsuits are centralized since October 2014 under MDL No. 2570 (IN RE: Cook Medical, Inc., IVC Filters Marketing, Sales Practices and Products Liability Litigation), presided by Judge Richard L. Young, in the Southern District of Indiana. IVC filters are designed to trap blood clots and stop them from traveling to the heart and lungs. However, the rising complaints of device migration, detachment of components, perforation, and filter fracture led to the filing of thousands of lawsuits against the manufacturers.

The trial for the first Bard IVC Filter lawsuits will begin on March 13, 2018, a part of the MDL: 2641-IN RE: Bard IVC Filters Products Liability Litigation formed in August 2015, and under U.S. Federal Judge David G. Campbell in the U.S. District Court District of Arizona.
