I can't believe I did not realize that on the Court Website you can click on the left side under MDL 1842 and you can pull up all the meeting minutes! Just read and you will see where all this mess stands at this point.
Jerry,
What is the website for the court? I would be interested in reading the minutes.

Just sent my atty. in St. Louis an email. He told me on Sept. 11 he was meeting with the defendents atty. in 2 to 3 weeks to discuss settlement. Well, it is now (4) weeks and the fool has not informed me of anything.

Let's see what the next excuse is.

Well, Lisa I have now sent (3) emails to my atty. in St. Louis and the last one was not very nice. I told him I may have to come to St. Louis to visit him. He has STILL not replied.

I am real angry. This is the first time that no one has just simply ignored me. What does that mean? Possibly I am getting ready to be screwed out of a settlement? I am so mistrusting at this point, I don't know what to think.

I have been searching online to see who to contact if the attorney's don't reply to me and I'm not given proper treatment. Since it is MO, I would need to contact the MO Bar Assoc.

I like getting responses through email, rather than phone calls as I have a written record directly from the atty. I keep a file so I can refer back to and use the data.

I'm giving one more day and then I'm emailing his associate and then I will go from there. I'll keep you informed.
Waiting as well

Its a frustrating position to be in. You can contact Don Migliori who is with lead counsels office and he or one of his staff will make contact on your behalf with your attny. In my case I emailed Mr Migliori and within 2 days i recieved a call from a associate from my attnys office. I was told they are waiting just like we are. They had no real anwsers to give me as far as time frame ect. I think we including the law firms representing us are at the mercy of Bards attnys and all the extensions they keep getting granted to wrap the remaining cases up.
Not to defend anyone but attnys dont get paid until we get paid so i am sure they would like to get this over with ASAP as well. I was told all the information has been submitted and they are just waiting for Bards counsel to review and make settlement offer. The amounts have already pretty much been pre set according to a catagory system set up by the judge. 1-6 . 6 being the lowest payout. To even qualify for one of the top catagories you have to have very specific damages with a confimed ring break . Even though you may have had what you think s/b a 2 or 3 because of wording and the specific nature of the matrix you will looking at a 5 or 6
Not to be bearer of bad news but 6 is what they pretty much are trying to assingn to the majority of cases . Its a insulting amount they give you to sign off and release them from any future litigation. Look on the other topix forum around pg 227 and the martrix along with amnts ect has been posted

The above is the website they are referring to. I have been blogging on both sites.

I know at some point I was told my case was a high priority one. Not sure if they said (1) or what. I did have a ring break.

Who knows what is going on. I've sent (5) emails with no response. This is the first time they just simply ignore me.

I had sent an email to Atty. Migliori several mo's ago and he replied that he could not discuss anything without my attorney present so not sure he will benefit me. I might send message and tell him they are now ignoring me.

I am getting ready to contact the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel. This office handles complaints on attorneys.

I may send a Certified Letter to my atty. so they will have to "sign" for it. I want a paper trail in my possession. Phone calls will have no trail.

It is sad that all we have been through with the surgeries and all and now have to deal with no good attorneys. I'm not one to give up and I don't think they can get any $$ without me, but who knows?

I received a partial settlement in May of 2012. A few months ago I received the remaining part that they had hung onto just in case Medicare was involved and the 10% which turned out to be 8%. I was a ring break case with mesh removal. I have enough money to live comfortable for my remaining years even though the lawyers and courts received even more. I don't have the money to make me normal again and after seeing six specialists they all refused to even attempt to operate anyway. I was classified a 1B and even though the money helps it will never make the experience go away. I now just try to be positive and make the best of my life. Everyday I have with my family I feel blessed. I am shocked that there are still so many people out there have yet to see a single dollar! Why have so many been paid yet so many others are still waiting. I'm assuming we are all involved in the Kugel ring mesh manufactured by Davol/Bard...

Just got a call from the paralegal at atty.'s office. One atty. no longer with them. She said the holdup is getting together with the other atty's. Once they get them in a meeting they can come to terms on a settlement amount.

The time frame has now been extended by the court to Feb. 28, 2014. I have a direct line to her for future contact.

At least my certified letter got someone's attention.

I'm glad to hear you got a response Jerry, now if we could get our settlements.
I am confused how so many have received their settlements like Mary had just wrote, yet others like us are still waiting.
I just don't get it !!!

I am curious as to how many of us are STILL WAITING?

Mary, if you are still following this blog I have some questions for you. I'm sure you had to sign a gag order about the settlement amounts but you say you have enough to live comfortably. My concern is that I'm 51, I'm trying to work to keep my family afloat but the pain usually gets the best of me daily so I take pain meds pretty much like eating candy just to get me thru each day. I'm not sure how long I will live given the circumstances but I do hope to be around for many years. Will a settlement be enough to retire at this age or will I have to continue working?
I know I am on the severe end of this lawsuit but I have never received a category number that I keep reading about.

A lot depends on if your casa is part of the class action or if you have a seperate case. The catagory # s are part of the class action . This was done to speed up the process. Are far as my understanding there were to groups of cases being heard. lisa is in the first group which they have finished up with . Our group of cases are still being settled and a extention has been granted until Febuary for things to be wrapped up. Che k with your attny to see if you are part of the class or are they presenting as a seperate case.

Dear Chris, You can be ugly if you think that will get you anywhere in life but it wont. The people in these post,like myself, have worked hard and in my case if I could I would be working. I worked all of my life till I had to stop anywhere from 60 to 100 hours a week. I worked hard to keep my family going. I can not help the sitiuation that I am in and wish every single day that I could go back to work. It is people like you who make people who cannot help their situation feel even worse. I hope nothing ever happens to you to put you in such a situation like most of us. All I ask is that you think of others before you make such comments again. Best wishes.

You have no clue what we have been through Chris so please show a little respect to those of us who have suffered and our lives have changed forever. I do work and am not looking for a payout however I would like to have some restitution for what I lost due to this faulty product that has caused so much suffering not only for myself but my family as well.
I pray for you Chris that you may someday find compassion for others.
