This is Michael Brady Lynch, lead trial attorney for The Michael Brady Lynch Firm.
Well, my prognostication skills weren’t up to my usual level. In a previous post a few days back, I firmly believed the Mirena IUD MDL was headed to Ohio. But I was wrong.
In fact, the Mirena IUD multidistrict litigation has been centralized to the Southern District of New York (In Re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434). The Transfer Order, which was filed on April 8, 2013, states that the MDL currently consists of eight cases in eight different districts. According to the Order, all but one of the cases alleges that the Mirena IUD migrated from its intended position and perforated the uterus, causing related injuries. The Order went on to say that since the motion has been filed, the Panel has been informed of more than 40 related actions.
I think the assignment of the Mirena MDL to the S.D.N.Y is a very good development and I plan to actively be involved in the new Mirena MDL.
Helping victims of the Mirena IUD is a large aspect of my practice. The Mirena IUD was introduced in 2000. The small, t-shaped plastic device is attached to two strings; it works to prevent pregnancy by releasing levonorgestrel when placed in the uterus. A long-term form of contraception, it can be left in the uterus for up to five years. The Mirena IUD he’d lead to serious injuries including:
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Embedment in the uterine wall
- Intestinal perforations or obstruction
