A new trial on a lawsuit involving surgical mesh pelvic repair products is under way in U.S. District Court in Charleston
Donna Cisson of Georgia is suing C.R. Bard. Inc. Her case is the first of thousands of surgical mesh federal lawsuits filed nationwide to go to trial.
The lawsuits accuse the implants' manufacturers of inadequate testing, failing to disclose potential risks and fraudulently promoting the mesh as a safe medical device.
The first trial of Cisson's lawsuit ended in a mistrial earlier this month.
The Charleston Daily Mail reported that jurors for the new trial were selected Monday.
Cisson's lawsuit is one of four bellwether cases that U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin will hear to determine the next step in litigation for the remaining lawsuits.
