Court Grants Coordination Petition in 24 California Pain Pump Trials
ORANGE COUNTY, CA – Jeffrey A. Milman of the medical negligence, product liability and personal injury law firm Hodes Milman Liebeck Liebeck, LLP, was appointed on June 28, 2010 as liaison counsel for the 24 state pain pump cases recently coordinated under a JCCP in the Orange County Superior Court. More cases are expected to be transferred to Orange County and could number as many as one hundred. The case is entitled In Re Infusion Pump Cases (JCCP 4615).
The cases, set to take place before the Hon. Judge Gail Adler, are just a few of the hundreds of pain pump product liability lawsuits that have been filed in the state of California and beyond. These cases allege that the manufacturers and distributors of pain pump medical devices knowingly marketed them for a contraindicated use not approved by the FDA that led to severe physical injuries. As liaison counsel, Mr. Milman will be responsible for management of all of the cases and will coordinate the litigation with the many Plaintiff law firms and the defense.Read full press release by clicking on “Download PDF” above.
