ASR Settlement Confirmed

Comments Off

ASR Hip Implant Judge David A Katz posted a docket entry this afternoon which for the first time confirmed that there is a settlement in the DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant litigation. It has been widely reported based upon unamed sources that there is a $4 billion dollar settlement in the works. However, there has been no official confirmation from the DePuy or Johnson & Johnson or the lawyers negotiating the settlement.

This docket entry today that there is a Settlement Oversight Committee is the first official acknowledgement that there is a settlement in the works. There is a hearing tomorrow Tuesday November 19, 2013 at 4:30pm EST and it is anticipated that the proposed settlement document will be released at that time.

Set forth below is the court’s docket entry.
