The judge presiding over the Mirena® multidistrict litigation (MDL) appointed Eric Holland to the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee this week, joining a group of just 11 other attorneys from across the country who the court selected for the PSC. Judge Cathy Seibel in the Southern District of New York appointed the PSC at the Mirena® July 2nd status conference, finding that the committee “represents an excellent cross-section and approves the list of Committee members.”
The Mirena® litigation involves claims that the birth control product, which was developed by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, can cause injuries in women who have had the system implanted into their bodies. The basic allegation is that the product can spontaneously perforate the uterine wall and migrate throughout the body, causing a host of problems and complications. This past spring, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation approved of the creation of a Mirena® MDL and assigned the consolidated case to the Southern District of New York, ruling that the lawsuits being filed across the country contained shared questions of fact.
Eric Holland and the mass tort team at Holland Groves Schneller & Stolze LLC are representing women from across the United States who have sustained injuries, undergone surgeries and incurred losses and harm because of the Mirena® system migrating or embedding.
