After a recent request to consolidate pending cases against Stryker Orthopedics in New Jersey State Court, Stryker announced last month that they will not object to the consolidation terms outlined in the petition. This means that cases will likely be consolidated in the requested venue of Bergen County, under Judge Brian Martinotti.
Judge Brian Martinotti has experience with similar cases involving defective metal-on-metal implants. In Addition, the location of Bergen County is close to the defendant’s headquarters. At least 10 cases have been filed so far in the state of New Jersey.
