Texas Jury Awards $1.2 Million to Woman Implanted with Transvaginal Mesh

In another in the series of ongoing bellwether cases, a Texas jury returned a verdict against Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary Ethicon in a case involving defectively designed transvaginal mesh. The jurors decided that the design of an Ethicon TVT-O mesh sling was defective and was the cause of the plaintiff’s ongoing pain and pelvic symptoms. The jury, however, rejected the plaintiff’s claim that Ethicon failed to properly warn about the risks of the mesh and did not award punitive damages. While Johnson & Johnson has ceased selling various transvaginal mesh products and bladder slings, the Ethicon TVT-O mesh sling still remains on the market.
