Judicial Panel Creates MultiDistrict Litigation for Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implants

After the filing of many lawsuits resulting for the FDA’s recall of Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II modular-neck hip replacement systems, a federal judicial panel created a consolidated docket for all Stryker cases. The June 12, 2013 order from the Judicial Panel of MultiDistrict Litigation will transfer almost 50 cases and all future Stryker cases to a single judge in Minnesota, Judge Donovan Frank. The cases will now be consolidated for pre-trial proceedings. The MDL process will not preclude the filing of Stryker claims in Massachusetts State Courts.
