An Alabama judge dismisses another product-liability suit over Stryker Corp.'s Trident replacement hip implant when the plaintiff fails to line up expert witnesses to bolster her claims.
Stryker Corp. (NYSE:SYK) notched another legal victory when a federal judge in Alabama sided with the company's Howmedica Osteonics subsidiary in a product liability dispute, ruling that the plaintiff missed a Nov. 30, 2009, deadline to assemble expert witnesses supporting her claims.
In a May 13 summary judgment, U.S. District Court Judge William Steele dismissed a four-count suit brought by an Gulf Shores, Ala., woman alleging Stryker and Howmedica sold defective prosthetic hips, including the one she received during replacement surgery in September 2007. Steele tossed the case brought by plaintiff Judith Hughes "with prejudice," meaning Hughes is barred from refiling the case.
