"This verdict establishes that Johnson & Johnson and Ethicon failed to tell physicians and women the truth about the catastrophic complications that can result from the Prolift," Gross attorney Adam Slater said in an interview.
Slater argued to jurors that company documents and e-mails showed Ethicon knew the mesh would cause pain and harm women.
Slater claimed that Gross's chronic pain and other health problems were risks Ethicon knew about before first selling Prolift in March 2005.
Slater said Ethicon knew the device caused pain and often became exposed through the vaginal skin. He said it hardened in women's bodies and was difficult for surgeons to remove.

"It's outrageous," said Adam Slater, a lawyer with Nagel, Rice, Dreifuss & Mazie."We're getting call after call from people who are outraged.Not only were they misled, but it's unlawful for someone to practice medicine without a license."
"This idea that he could act as a technician violates not only the conditions of the order, but it violates the entire spirit of the order," Slater said.
Slater, however, says the revocation order bars Kellogg from working with a licensed doctor.One line in an addendum to the order states that he may "not occupy, share or use office space in which another licensee practices a licensed healthcare profession," he noted.
"This guy should not have been working in a doctor's office," Slater said."That's our reading of the order."
Settlement negotiations surrounding the lawsuits created more problems than they solved, leading instead to Dello Russo's filing the defamation suit.He is also alleging extortion, saying that Mazie's partner, Bruce Nagel, threatened to go to the media if the doctor didn't pay a $3 million settlement.

"There's no reason why doctors should have special protection," said Adam Slater, an attorney with Nagel Rice Dreifuss & Mazie, a Livingston firm that has nine lawsuits pending against Dello Russo, including the case in question."Especially in this climate, when medical services are being sold like mortgages and cars."
Doctors, lawyers, and other professionals have not been subject to the Consumer Fraud Act in large part because they are already policed by state boards and other regulatory bodies.
Slater, the plaintiffs' attorney, said the decision is "very, very important" because consumer-fraud cases have a lower standard of proof than malpractice cases and can produce significant payouts.The defendant who loses a consumer-fraud action must pay the winner's legal fees, which could amount to an additional $300,000 in a case with a $1 million verdict.
The case seeks class-action status, which Slater said could bring in several thousand patients who received care from Kellogg.He said the consumer-fraud ruling will make it much easier to get a class-action designation.
The plaintiffs hope to get their money back for the laser eye surgery - about $5,000, Slater said.If they win under the Consumer Fraud Act, they would receive triple damages, or $15,000.
