Bone and Tissue Scandal: MDL Hearing 5/25/06

The JPML will hear argument on 5/25 in Kansas City, Missouri regarding Regeneration Technologies Inc.'s MDL Petition. RTI would like to establish an MDL in New Jersey and have approximately a half dozen cases transferred.

Several will argue that the infected bone and tissue cases filed and to be filed should be addressed in an MDL in South Florida.

You can expect other states to be presented during this hearing. I am opposed to an MDL at this juncture in the investigation and litigation of the scandal, but see it down the road.

Most infected bone and tissue claims may likely be made in New York given the information obtained to date, but you may see claims from Minnesota, Oklahoma, Wahsington and Texas as the scandal continues.
