IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
CASE NO. 1:11-cv-00015-MP -GRJ
CR BARD INC,
This matter is before the Court on Doc. 5, Consent Motion to Stay Pending a Ruling on
Transfer by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation. This case is one of a number of
pending federal cases in which plaintiffs seek relief in connection with the implantation of
various models of the Avaulta® Biosynthetic Support System. The Judicial Panel on
Multidistrict Litigation (the “MDL Panel”) ordered that centralization pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §
1407 was appropriate for the litigation concerning allegations of defects in the various models of
the Avaulta® Biosynthetic Support System. The MDL Panel transferred and assigned the
litigation to Judge Joseph R. Goodwin of the Southern District of West Virginia. In re: Avaulta
Pelvic Support Systems Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2187 (S.D.W.V.). Pursuant to
Rule 7.1 of the Rules of Procedure of the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation,
Bard has notified the Panel that this case qualifies as a potential “tag-along” action. As a result,
the parties expect that the case will soon be transferred to MDL No. 2187 pending in the
Southern District of West Virginia. Accordingly, it is hereby
