Monofilament Supplier Dismissed from Mo. Federal Hernia Mesh Case for Lack of Jurisdiction
January 22, 2018
ST. LOUIS - A Missouri federal judge has dismissed for lack of personal jurisdiction claims asserted against a monofilament supplier in a hernia mesh case, finding the supplier is not a subsidiary of defendant Bard Inc. and lacks the requisite contacts with Missouri.
On Jan. 18, Judge Catherine Perry of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri further found the supplier does not, as the plaintiff alleged, sell polypropylene resin, but rather manufactures monofilament extrusion machines and synthetic monofilaments made out of raw materials, including resin.
