There was an update on this. I read an article on the net that the plaintiff was also awarded more than $7M in punitive damages by the jury. Try searching bladderslingrecall.us, the site may have more info.

It is indeed good news that Linda Gross was awarded compensatory damages for her ordeal. The actual damages have reached $11.1 million after punitive damages were awarded. This development has been welcomed by the thousands of women who suffered as a result of these devices.

Serious complications and deadly health issues were linked to these meshes. As a matter of fact, there are lots of vaginal mesh lawsuits filed by patients of these faulty devices in the US. But the downside is that still there are many of these devices available in the market today. You may want to check this article http://lindashealthblog.blog.com/2013/06/08/c...
