Ethicon TVT Pelvic Mesh Device Case to Proceed in Ohio Federal Court
December 9, 2020

On Dec. 4, Chief Judge Patricia A. Gaughan of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio further found the plaintiff adequately alleged that the device’s risks ran “contrary to the representations and marketing the defendants presented to the medical community and patients.”
