DePuy Pinnacle 2016 Trial Update 22





Hi, Stuart Talley here to do a quick update on the DePuy Pinnacle trial.  We received word from the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals (COA)  on various petitions that  DePuy had filed  in an effort to up-end  the current trial that is set  to start opening statements on Monday, October  3rd.

The COA rejected all of DePuy’s arguments and efforts to basically  stay the litigation  pending their appeals.  DePuy made arguments that there was no jurisdiction in the Texas court for people that resided in California. They also made some arguments that consolidating the case  was unfair and the speed at which  the trial was going to commence  was  unfair; that they didn’t have enough time to  get ready. All these  arguments  were denied by the COA and opening statements will begin  as scheduled.

This is  good news for the plaintiffs.  Stay tuned. We will provide regular updates  on how the trial progresses .
