With Boston Scientific settling nearly 350 pelvic mesh lawsuits, a West Virginia federal judge, Judge Joseph R. Goodwin, dismissed the settled suits filed against the company under the multidistrict litigation 2326 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. The company was accused of making defective pelvic mesh implants. The settlement was reached almost 5 years after the MDL was formed. The parties had filed two joint motions for dismissal with prejudice. The case involves seven MDLs composed of 28,000 individual transvaginal mesh cases against Boston Scientific and other makers of mesh implants, such as American Medical Systems, C.R. Bard Inc., and Johnson & Johnson.
