January 24, 2011 – The Honorable Judge David Katz is currently deciding which attorneys should be appointed to serve on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee (PSC) for the DePuy hip implant product liability litigation. The DePuy cases were recently consolidated in the Northern District of Ohio where the pre-trial litigation will be conducted. The PSC is responsible for litigating on behalf of the Plaintiffs. All of the work they do is for the common benefit of every Plaintiff whose suit is on file in the MDL. Judge Katz, who presides over the MDL, asked for letters from every Plaintiffs’ lawyer interested in serving on the PSC. These lawyers were then given the opportunity to appear before Judge Katz in court on Thursday, January 20, 2011 to tell him why they should be appointed. Ninety-one lawyers made that court appearance. Each lawyer was allowed to speak for two minutes. Judge Katz’s decision is expected within the next few days since there is much work to be done and no time to waste.
