DePuy Pinnacle MDL Moving Forward Through Discovery
On May 7, 2012, the DePuy Pinnacle MDL moved forward with three orders signed by presiding Judge Kinkeade. The first detailed confidentiality requirements for all Pinnacle hip litigation documentation. The second document also related to MDL documentation, and explained requirements for digitizing all paperwork. Additionally, the judge remanded one DePuy hip lawsuit back to the transferor court. The case in question involved not the Pinnacle device involved in the MDL, but the ASR system that was subject to the DePuy ASR hip recall.
