West Virginia Jury Awards $18.5 Million to Plaintiffs in the Latest Boston Scientific Vaginal Mesh Trial

Legal-Bay LLC reported that a West Virginia jury has awarded $18.5 million to plaintiffs in the latest Boston Scientific vaginal mesh trial. The four women plaintiffs involved were all implanted with the Obtryx mesh, a mid-urethral sling which is used to treat incontinence, and they alleged that the implanted device left them with nerve damage, infections, and pain during sexual intercourse. This case against Boston Scientific Corporation was the second federal case filed in multidistrict litigation over their pelvic mesh, and the third case since September in which plaintiffs were awarded damages.

Boston Scientific to Face $5 Billion Court Battle over 2006 Acquisition

Boston Scientific will go to trial on November 20, 2014 facing a potential $5 billion lawsuit for a 2006 acquisition that is widely credited with causing years of headaches for the firm. The firm will appear in court before a federal judge in New York on November 20 to answer to a lawsuit by rival Johnson & Johnson. The New Jersey life sciences giant lost a bidding war nearly a decade ago to buy the pacemaker company Guidant. Boston Scientific paid $27 billion for that company in a deal that is often cited as the beginning of years of debt and resulting financial declines. While the company has been on a rebound for the past year, its growth has stalled as it faces lawsuits not only from J&J, but from patients implanted with a mesh device which many say has caused health problems in thousands of women.
