Jury Finds No Proof of Pelvic Mesh Design Defect

U.S. District Court, Western District of North Carolina

A North Carolina federal jury found in favor of Boston Scientific Corp. after a two-week trial determining whether the plaintiff has been injured by the company's pelvic mesh product. The lawsuit was part of ongoing multidistrict litigation in West Virginia before the court transferred it to North Carolina.

The plaintiff argued that the Uphold device was defectively designed, but Shook attorneys demonstrated to the jury that she was not able to support her claims by raising specific objections to evidence during the trial.

The case is part of Shook's ongoing work in pelvic mesh litigation.
