Ethicon, J&J Prevail in Wash. Federal Pelvic Mesh Action

  • Order

TACOMA, Wash. — A Washington federal judge has awarded Ethicon Inc. and Johnson & Johnson summary judgment in a pelvic mesh action, ruling that the failure-to-warn claims fail because the implanting surgeon said she would have recommended the device even if she had been presented with a different warning.
