Upcoming Trials for DePuy ASR Litigation

As lawsuits have continued to pile up against Johnson & Johnson’s DePuy Orthopaedics over their recalled ASR hip, the company has reached what is believed to be the first settlement for cases brought by recipients of the device. Reports name Anneliese Rundle, Martha Bender and Katherine Guy as the first claimants to reach a settlement with DePuy over their injuries. Their trial was scheduled for December and would have been the first case to be presented to a jury in the United States.

The next trial for DePuy ASR lawsuits is set for January of 2013.
