Kentucky AG Sues J&J Over Pelvic Mesh Marketing

Attorney General Andy Beshear has filed a civil lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson for allegedly deceptive marketing of surgical pelvic mesh products. The lawsuit alleges that the company purposely concealed and misrepresented to doctors and patients many of the risks of adverse events associated with the devices, which include chronic pelvic pain, urinary and defecatory dysfunction, pain with sexual intercourse or total loss of sexual function.  The lawsuit also contends that the company represented to doctors that the products were “FDA approved” when in fact they were only “FDA cleared.” [8/19/16]
