My attorney is also Johnson law in Texas and I'm being told the same as you. I don't feel that they are communicating very well with the process.
We can only hope to close this chapter in February. I have heard that the majority of lawsuits have settled but I'm not sure why ours is still pending.

I've been waiting 5 yrs. 3 surgeries. Bowel resection. Still in a lot of pain and need to have more surgery. I'm starting to wonder if this ever going to settle. Anyone have any news or advice. My attorney just keeps saying it'll settle soon. I don't think I believe them.

Britt, if your atty. is telling you "he is trying to get it to court", that would sound like you are taking your case to court. My claim is included in the multi-litigation cale (MDL-1842). I was told it is a class (1) due to ring breakage. I still don't know why some people have already settled and others are just hanging out there.

My attorney in St. Louis says the problem is getting the defendant attorneys in a room to get them to agree on some figures. After (5) years, I am not sure what to believe! I just hope the Feb. 28 deadline indicated by the RI Court is the FINALE date and we get our $$. I was told I would receive a letter. I am going to call again after Jan. 1. On Dec. 29 it will be 2-mo's since my last contact.

I would ask your attorney if your case is going to trial or are you in the multi litigation case? He needs to clarify this with you. Good luck.$$ won't take away pain, but he can ease my burden!

My last post got deleted so I'll try again. I spoke to the atty's office. Was told they were not having any luck getting the defendent atty's to sit down with them and come to terms on a settlement amount so they have sent everything to Motley & Rice to enlist their help in getting it settled. Since the holidays are over, she hopes something will now get done.
Had apt. with my doctor and she told me "to learn to live with pain" as most people that have been through (4) hernia surgeries never get over it. That sure made me celebrate the New Year!! Yes, alcohol does help, but I don't want to become an alcoholic!
The court website still shows Feb. 28 as deadline so let's hope we all get our settlement soon.$$ won't take away pain, but will help me live a little better. SS only goes so far.

I think that they are settleing the small cases first. In most cases like this they settle the least damage first. I think the class 1 and class 3 will be the last. to settle. In am a class 3 with alot of the same problems as class 1. How many in here are class. 1 or class 2. And for those who figured out this is not my name you are right. We dont need to use our names on posts like this and that is why I did not use my real name. Best wishes to all.

I have never been categorized with a class #. I don't get much communication from my attorney either. Guess I need to find out what class I'm in.

Hi Lisa there are 6 classes. Classes 1 and 2 are for ring breakage and damages classes 3 and 4 are for ring buckle and damages and classes 5 and are for the lesser problems. Go to and find the court orders. At this site you can look at court calenders ruleings. I cant tell you where your case is I don't know how mine is all I know is the class I am in. In one of the orders it tells the classes and it should help you to find your class. Hope this helps you.

Court website shows there is an open conference scheduled for 2/20/24 on the Kugel Mesh. I sure hope something is about to happen. I'll be in touch with my attorney by Feb. 3. I just hope this does not get extended again.

Spoke to my attorney today. Was told that Motley & Rice had sent them an email and want to discuss "settlement". They have (19) cases and have to get all 19 to agree to the settlement offers before they will agree to settle. My claim was started (5) years ago and I am their longest client. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed. At least their is discussion going on.

I spoke to my attorney and now I'm more confused than ever. When I first found out that I was given this faulty mesh I contacted an attorney that advertised for the class action lawsuit. I signed a legal documents with them and I recall it saying that I would not pursue any other council. Now I'm told that this firms cases are all individual cases and not part of the class action. I inquired about the February court dart and was told they new nothing about a court hearing. I was also told that Bard offered an amount but the attorneys rejected the offer.
My attorney said they are "talking" but no court has been set. What the hell??? He said he would contact me mid March with any updates. Sheeeeeeeesh.

Lisa, the MDL1842 I am in is a multi district litigation case. Since there is so many of these product liability cases they have been transferred to one central court in R.I. The cases are individsual in that each one is settled separately $$ wise. From what I have been told, if I refuse the settlement and we can't derive an amount, then it would be forced to go to court and I think it then goes to trial in the state I reside. I am not sure if this is what you are involved in or not. this is the website you can go to and read data on MDL1842. I would call your attorney back very soon and ask him if you are a part of this MDL. This is my first time ever being involved in anything like this and I want it to be the last. I just want compensation for all the pain and suffering these mesh surgeries have caused.
Your attorney will have to tell you something and he should be aware of the open conference being held on Feb. 20 if he is on top of it. Good luck and let us know what he says.

This is exactly what I thought I was in worth the MDL 1842. I know I was originally in the class action but because they found some "hidden" information that this mesh was never approved for human use the lawyer said they are pursing individual cases.
All I know for sure is my entire life has turned upside down and my quality of life is so low. I feel for my husband and children. They have had to pay the consequences. Sure I am the one suffering with the pain but they basically lost a wife and mother in the process. This whole thing just really sucks.
I'm having to schedule yet another surgery because the scar tissue is so bad in my abdomen. Will this ever end???

Why was the Feb 20th meeting canceled?

Mexico, MO

#481 Feb 18, 2014
I don't know why the meeting was canceled. I am planning on calling my atty. tomorrow and see what I can find out. It does not indicate it is rescheduled, it just says Canceled. Court documents show this is to be wrapped up by Feb. 28. They extended it from last Oct. date. Now what is the story? After 5 years my patience has about ran out. The longer they wait, the more of us will die and less $$ for them to pay out. If I can get an answer tomorrow, I'll post it.

Just spoke to my atty. They don't know why the conference in RI was canceled. They did receive a settlement offer but it was not sufficient. The offer was for all the clients they have lumped together. They have now made a counter offer so I just have to hold on and "wait" some more.
