The lawsuit, MacDonald et al v. DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. et al, filed in the Bergen County division of the New Jersey Superior Court, is slated to be dismissed once the court receives formal notice from both sides, according to the records.
The case "has been resolved," Judge Brian Martinotti wrote, according to court documents.
"All pending motions are withdrawn, the complaint will be dismissed with prejudice upon receipt of a fully executed stipulation signed by all counsel," Martinotti wrote, according to the documents.
Johnson & Johnson pulled the DePuy ASR device from the market in 2010, prompting thousands of personal injury lawsuits across the country.
Last month a federal judge delayed for a 2nd time the 1st bellwether trial in the multidistrict litigation over the DePuy ASR implant (other cases are proceeding outside of the MDL). The 1st trial over the DePuy ASR implant settled in August 2012 before it could go to trial. In March, a jury awarded another plaintiff, Loren Kransky, $8.3 million after deciding that the device was defectively designed (California Judge J. Stephen Czuleger rejected DePuy’s request for a new trial in May). In April, an Illinois state jury found for DePuy in Carol Strum vs. DePuy Orthopaedics & Premier Orthopaedic Sales.
