Last week, the Eighth Circuit published its decision in Atwell v. Boston Scientific Corp., Nos. 13-8031, 13-8032, 13-8033, 2013 WL 6050762 (8th Cir. Nov. 18, 2013), where it held that three multiple-plaintiff actions alleging injury from transvaginal mesh collectively constituted a “mass action” under CAFA (the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005).

Because of our firm’s involvement in the case, we are going to direct you to the fine synopsis put together by the Drug & Device Law Blog.  Another comprehensive summary was published by Law360.

We would also like to thank everyone who has read the blog during our first year of publication.  Have a great Thanksgiving!
