As we mourn for Carol Cavness in her loss against JnJ today; remember: DON’T GIVE UP! For a while it looked like AMS & Boston Scientific were going to get away with mass torture. But, they haven’t gotten away… yet. The same goes for JnJ. Even as you allow yourself to be discouraged and mourn for Carol’s loss. NEVER. EVER. EVER. GIVE. UP. That is the one thing we MUST NOT DO.
Have you read this article from @JaneAkre @MeshDeviceNews? It’s an important reminder right now for those who have AMS mesh devices.
Also remember that Boston Scientific is in the process of buying portions of AMS. Before the AMS buyout, Boston Scientific became emboldened last year after winning two MDL trials. However, with its last trial in Dallas, Boston Scientific was given a reality check about the severity of injuries their products have caused, when the jury reached a $78M+ verdict (later reduced to 26.7M) against the company.
Moral of the story: Don’t ever give up.
