Judge Joseph R. Goodwin, who is managing pretrial proceedings in the C.R. Bard multidistrict litigation (MDL), as well as the six other transvaginal mesh MDLs in West Virginia, denied the transvaginal mesh manufacturer's request on the grounds that C.R. Bard failed to deliver a sufficient reason for delaying the bellwether trials.
However, after C.R. Bard has been dealt multi-million dollar loss upon multi-million dollar loss in 2014, U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin most likely began to sense that the C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh lawsuits were headed towards major losses for the manufacturer.
In fact, Bloomberg published an article in which Judge Goodwin expressed his astonishment as to the lack of stockholder pressure being placed on C.R. Bard over the multi-million dollar losses.
Judge Goodwin was quoted as saying, “If I were a stockholder of any of these companies, I would be materially interested in the fact that there have been multiple million-dollar verdicts for individual plaintiffs.â€

Plaintiffs’ lawyers said in a court ..., 23 Jan 2015 [cached]
Plaintiffs’ lawyers said in a court filing late Thursday there was “no evidence of fraud†tainting nearly 23,000 federal mesh injury lawsuits, which have been consolidated before U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin in the Southern District of West Virginia.
The filing came in response to a motion last week from Johnson & Johnson asking Goodwin to allow an investigation into whether women are being illegally solicited to join mesh litigation by unknown callers, some of whom seemed to have knowledge of private medical data. The company said it was concerned the calls may have resulted in bogus claims.
J&J has asked Goodwin to make plaintiffs offer proof they had been injured by an Ethicon device, and have their lawyers answer questions under oath about any knowledge of solicitation calls.
While strongly denouncing the “rogue call center’s shenanigans,†lead plaintiffs’ lawyers said J&J was using the calls to justify imposing unnecessary and burdensome measures that “would grind this litigation to a screeching halt.â€
Lead plaintiffs’ counsel said they had raised a similar issue more than a year ago with Goodwin, after several clients told them they had received, unsolicited, a letter from a call center bearing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s logo and promising $25,000 in compensation.
Ethicon is one of seven companies that collectively face more than 70,000 suits before Goodwin over transvaginal mesh devices, used to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.
