TOPEKA, Kan. — A Kansas federal judge has awarded Ethicon and its parent company Johnson & Johnson summary judgment on a strict liability failure-to-warn claim in a pelvic mesh action, ruling it is barred by the learned intermediary doctrine because the implanting surgeon stands by his decision to use the device.
