With thousands of vaginal mesh cases filed and pending across the United States, many are paying very close attention to the recent verdict that happened in Bakersfield, California.
A jury has awarded a woman and her husband $5.5 million against the maker of a vaginal mesh medical implant, claiming they knew their product was unsafe.
Christine Scott got the news Monday morning at Kern County Superior Courthouse. She had a vaginal mesh surgically implanted and has had complications ever since. She and her husband sued the maker and won, making it the first victory of its kind in the nation.
