I am glad to hear that this case was concluded with a verdict in favor of Linda Gross. She finally gets the compensation she deserves. I also came across some posts at and found that another pelvic mesh-related trial has just been set in motion in Chicago. Let's hope that the plaintiff also wins her case just as Linda Gross did.

For the pain and suffering she endured, she deserves all the damages awarded. I understand from that punitive damages were also awarded. This should serve as a warning not just to mesh manufacturers, but all companies who serve the public.
