Motley Rice attorney Don Migliori comments on verdict in hernia patch suit
Motley Rice attorney Don Migliori discusses the verdict in the first lawsuit of thousands against Davol, Inc. alleging that it manufactured and marketed faulty hernia repair patches with The Providence Journal. The jury in the case, which began on Monday, March 29, 2010 in U.S. District Court in Rhode Island, found that the company was negligent in its design of the Composix® Kugel® Mesh hernia repair patch. As lead counsel in the multidistrict litigation, Migliori commented, "It's a very important ruling for all 3,000 cases...It means the patch is a negligently designed patch, and shouldn't be and should not have been on the market."
