Boston Scientific (NYSE:BSX) reportedly agreed to settle a lawsuit brought by a woman who alleged she was injured by 1 of the company’s transvaginal mesh devices, which have been the target of more than 26,000 product liability lawsuits.
The confidential settlement was reached yesterday, a week after a trial began in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, according to plaintiff’s attorney Jim Perdue of Perdue & Kidd, Reuters reported.
The case, brought by Roseanne Sanchez, is the 6th to go to trial against Marlborough, Mass.-based Boston Scientific over its mesh products, which are designed to treat pelvic organ prolapse and female urinary incontinence, according to the news service.
In April Boston Scientific agreed to a $119 million deal to settle nearly 3,000 of the lawsuits. That same month a federal judge ruled that punitive damages claims against the company can stand in another of the cases.
Last November, Boston lost its 1st 2 federal pelvic mesh trials, in West Virginia and Miami.
