Minneapolis, MN "Because there are a number of transvaginal mesh manufacturers that have made many TVM products and subsequently caused injuries to thousands of women, the Judicial Panel on Multi-District Litigation decided it makes the most sense to have federal TVM lawsuits, including AMS claims, consolidated together in multi-district litigation, or MDL," says attorney Stacy Hauer, who is co-lead council in the Minnesota State Court American Medical Systems (AMS) litigation. This decision is in part because many women were implanted with mesh products made by multiple manufacturers.
