DOCTOR'S AUTHORITY TO "PRACTICE MEDICINE" MANIPULATED BY DRUG AND DEVICE COMPANIES

PELVIC MESH SETTLEMENT TALKS IN WEST VIRGINIA TRANSVAGINAL MESH MDL TODAY.

NO DOCTORS WILL BE THERE. NO DOCTORS WILL PAY THE PRICE THEIR PATIENTS PAY.

Dr. G. Willy Davila, Dr. Vincent Lucente, Dr. John Miklos, Dr. Alan Garely and other paid medical advisors to Ethicon/Johnson and Johnson trained hundreds of doctors worldwide to implant the Gynecare TVT bladder sling. There are now 72,000 pelvic mesh lawsuits filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.

The FDA’s 510(k) LAW DID NOT injure me.

NO Congressman injured me.

NO Senator injured me.

DR. BERNARD CANTOR injured me when he cut me open with a scalpel while I was unconscious under anesthesia to implant the dangerous 510(k) Gynecare TVT Prolene polypropylene mesh bladder sling.

DOCTORS injure patients.

DOCTORS are RESPONSIBLE for their actions.

DOCTORS DO NOT ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY for their actions.

NO LAW will change the culture of “THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE” where DOCTORS KILL or DESTROY THEIR PATIENTS.

Until DOCTORS step up to the table COLLECTIVELY, DEATHS and INJURIES TO PATIENTS WILL NOT STOP!

DOCTORS:

RUN the FDA.

RUN the nation’s hospitals.

RUN the professional medical societies.

WRITE prescriptions.

PERFORM surgeries.

ONLY A DOCTOR HAS THE AUTHORITY TO PRESCRIBE MEDICAL TREATMENT FOR A PATIENT.

HARM TO PATIENTS ONLY HAPPENS UNDER the AUTHORITY of a MEDICAL DOCTOR.

Ethicon, Johnson and Johnson, Gynecare Worldwide, Ethicon Women's Health and Urology, Boston Scientific, American Medical Systems, C.R. Bard and other device companies manipulate the health system through a doctor's authority to write prescriptions for their drugs and to implant their devices.

Patients are not safe.

ATRA.ORG COMPLICIT IN ETHICON and JOHNSON & JOHNSON LYING TO AND DEFRAUDING WOMEN IN MESH LAWSUITS

Dear D. Mckinney,

You should carefully read the motion before jumping on the fraud bandwagon. The affidavits look as though they have been forged by Ethicon’s attorneys. Look at missing notary stamps, compare the signatures, missing pages, etc. Ethicon is trying to diminish their losses at the upcoming settlement talks next week, and any trick in the storm is fine with them.

In 20 minutes I did an online search and these are nothing but robo calls to scam people to go buy a $150.00 money card to receive their “25,000.00$”. These are not attorney firms. These are idiots overseas scamming people in the U.S. Does no one read anymore? Just believe anything that is written because it is written. The real fraud is Ethicon/Johnson & Johnson for the unending harm to thousands of people worldwide, mesh, metal hip implants, morcellator devices, etc.

Let me tell you about something about those so called “phony lawsuits”. You are dead wrong. Hundreds of thousands of women are injured WORLDWIDE and there are groups all over the world petitioning their governments to get this crap, yes crap, off the market. There is a roar coming from around the world and this devastation of women will stop.

SOCIAL MEDIA WILL DESTROY J&J!

#MaggieFitzPatrickJNJ
#JPM15
#SheriWoodruffJNJ

And by the way, these products are under investigation by the DOJ already in at least 42 states because of the criminal actions of J&J, Ethicon, C.R. Bard, Boston Scientific, American Medical Systems, etc.

We don’t need tort reform. We need safe medical devices.

Citing Latest Bombshell Allegations of Trial-Lawyer Fraud, ATRA Urges Congress, DOJ to Investigate
Mesh Defendant's Motion Offers Evidence of Privacy Violations and Massive Fraud in Recruitment of Clients

CONTACT: Darren McKinney

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Washington, DC, January 14, 2015 -- In light of a stunning defense motion (see attachment) filed today in a West Virginia federal court, alleging massive fraud on the part of plaintiffs’ lawyers in their aggressive recruitment of clients for pelvic mesh litigation, the American Tort Reform Association (ATRA) renewed its call on Congress, prosecutors and bar associations to investigate and prosecute those who defraud the civil justice system.


“There seems to be something of a double standard when it comes to the willingness of authorities to investigate and prosecute allegations of fraud,” began ATRA president Tiger Joyce. “Mortgage lenders, insurers, energy producers, utilities, a variety of manufacturers and many others are routinely subjected to made-for-media scrutiny by congressional committees, the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission and state attorneys general.


“But rarely do examples of even blatant fraud by plaintiffs’ lawyers, such as wholesale creation of phony chest x-rays for asbestos lawsuits, draw comparable scrutiny,” Joyce continued. “Too often, authorities are willing to look the other way and leave private sector victims of trial-lawyer fraud on their own to seek justice.”


Joyce noted lawsuits, brought under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act by CSX Transportation, Feld Entertainment and Chevron that, just in the past year, successfully punished fraud by plaintiffs’ lawyers in asbestos, animal rights and environmental litigation, respectively. He also pointed to ongoing revelations in the Garlock Sealing Technologies bankruptcy proceedings where the presiding judge has already called out plaintiffs’ attorneys for manipulating evidence of asbestos exposure. Garlock has now initiated litigation accusing several asbestos law firms of fraud, and other defendants are expected to do the same.
“With roughly a 100,000 similar claims pending in federal court, today’s defense motion in pelvic mesh litigation raises still more questions about the ethics and practices of some personal injury lawyers and the firms they contract to recruit clients. But investigative authorities continue to avert their eyes,” Joyce observed. “The latest edition of ATRA’s annual Judicial Hellholes report raised a red flag about the alarming multimillion-dollar campaign the plaintiffs’ bar has waged to make mesh litigation the nation’s fastest growing mass tort ̶ even though regulators haven’t declared the surgical implants unsafe, and even as many physicians consider the implants to be the best treatment available for many women.”


In its motion filed today in federal multidistrict litigation presided over by U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin, Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Ethicon, offers extensive evidence of seemingly wholesale fraud by plaintiffs’ lawyers in recruiting mesh surgery plaintiffs. For example, transcripts of recruiters’ phone calls to women that have not even had mesh implant surgeries brazenly encourage the women to lie in order to “collect $30,000 to $40,000” of “compensation.” The motion also alleges violations of many women’s privacy by way of violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

“How many millions or billions of dollars must U.S. companies unjustly be forced to squander in defending themselves against fraudulent lawsuits before members of Congress, state and federal prosecutors and state bar associations begin to actively investigate, prosecute and punish such fraud? The 114th Congress’s House and Senate judiciary committees should begin gathering information and conducting hearings into allegations of widespread trial-lawyer fraud, and prosecutors and bar associations should pay close attention to their findings,” Joyce concluded.

The American Tort Reform Association is the only national organization dedicated exclusively to tort and liability reform through public education and the enactment of legislation. ATRA's membership includes non profits, small and large companies, as well as state and national trade, business, and professional associations.

OOOPPPS! DONNA CISSON WINS VS. BARD....OH NO, SHE LOSES! $1,125,000.00 TO THE STATE OF GEORGIA...

Jury's $2M Verdict In Bard Mesh Bellwether Stands

By Caroline Simson

Law360, New York (January 21, 2015, 2:56 PM ET) -- A West Virginia federal judge on Tuesday left intact a $2 million jury verdict against C.R. Bard Inc. in a bellwether trial over alleged defects in its vaginal mesh implants, saying the company hadn’t proven a miscarriage of justice and denying it a new trial.

But U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin also refused to find unconstitutional a provision in Georgia’s Tort Reform Act of 1987 that requires prevailing product liability plaintiffs to pay 75 percent of their punitive damages to the state. The Cissons’ complaint...

IF YOU ARE AN INJURED PATIENT, THERE ARE PARASITES EVERYWHERE TO USE YOU AND ABUSE YOU...the FDA, the U.S. Government's DOJ, doctors, hospitals, corporations, inside the beltway in Washington, D.C. "patient advocacy organizations" who use you as their "dog and pony show" before Congress...and the latest....THE STATE OF GEORGIA! The entire system is highly abusive and disgusting!

CALIFORNIA COURT OF APPEALS UPHOLDS JURY VERDICT OF $3.6 MILLION IN CHRISTINE SCOTT V. C.R. BARD!

The legal system is holding major mesh manufacturers accountable...C.R. Bard, Ethicon/Johnson & Johnson, Boston Scientific, American Medical Systems.

The FDA IS NOT!

When will the FDA start protecting the most precious resource any society has, its women. Mothers keep cultures and societies together. They are the strong foundation of any civilization.

THE FDA IS DERELICT IN ITS DUTY!!

While the companies change their instructions for use and file another 510(k) application for mesh sheets, instead of mesh kits, to be implanted in a few more million women, the FDA stands by as though it is an innocent bystander watching A TRAIN WRECK!

Synthetic Surgical Mesh implanted in women's vaginas around the world is a MEDICAL HORROR! Yet the authorities around the world, including our great institution, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration - the hallowed FDA - hides behind "CONFIDENTIALITY" while surgeons worldwide brutalize women in the operating room.

But these companies do not care about a lousy $3.6 million dollar verdict for a horribly injured woman. Hell no! Billions of dollars of annual profits is the norm for these companies. They can pay multimillions of dollars to their inhuman women attorneys and never miss a beat.

God save us!

CLEVELAND CLINIC'S DR. G. WILLY DAVILA PERJURES HIMSELF AGAIN IN BOSTON SCIENTIFIC TRIAL IN MIAMI!

Guess liars just don't know where to stop. Sworn testimony or not. Especially Dr. G. Willy Davila when it comes to protecting his favorite thing in life, surgical mesh. He has personally taken on a campaign to implant mesh in as many women around the world as possible.

He's very proud of his protection of synthetic surgical mesh. Does he care if it mutilates women internally? NO. Does he care if those women will never have sex again, never work, never be able to sit or walk or do anything normal? NO. NO. NO.

What G. Willy Davila wants is to be considered important for his surgical skills. Davila wants to be well liked, admired and appreciated by other doctors. As to the women, damn them all. I guess he must be a misogynist. How else would he be able to be so callous about all the lives he has destroyed as the Johnny Appleseed of mesh around the world?

In America we call it PERJURY. It is a CRIME.

So last Friday afternoon, I am sitting in court in downtown Miami at a trial for 4 women in the West Virginia Boston Scientific MDL02326, Judge Joseph Goodwin presiding. Very impressive to see all the attorneys and how the process unfolds.

Except for Davila. Despite being a PAID preceptor for Johnson & Johnson/Ethicon since at least 2001 (over $100,000.00) and a consultant/preceptor for American Medical Systems, there he is in a video deposition...UNDER OATH...saying he has not used mesh for prolapse repair since 2000, 2001. LIE! LIE! LIE!

He was the first doctor EVER to implant the American Medical Systems Apogee transvaginal mesh in the U.S. in 2004. All kinds of press releases, etc, etc, etc how Davila has worked for them over the last 10 years.

DAVILA...stop being a one man wrecking ball for women's lives. Stop the lying. Stop the harm.

You ruined my life, continually cutting and cuttting and cutting into my bladder, telling the jury in the med mal lawsuit against Dr. Cantor, "Oh we will manage the erosion of the mesh into Lana Keeton's bladder conservatively. She will be fine." Of course the jury believed him. He is a doctor at Cleveland Clinic.

As to me, no conservative management got the mesh out of my bladder. Three (3) major abdominal surgeries since 2009 and I am totally mutilated because Davila did not remove it years ago which would have had a much better outcome for me.

NO, for 7 years, 2002 to 2009, ..."let's just do those conservative in-office trimmings". Let me just cut you and cut you and cut you. More money for me, for Cleveland Clinic and I don't have to report the adverse events of the defective Gynecare TVT bladder sling.

Last Friday he did the same thing to Margarita Dotres in court in downtown Miami in the Boston Scientific MDL02326. "Oh I expect a really good outcome for Ms. Dotres when I do surgery on her in December." How does he know that? HE DOES NOT KNOW THAT. He is a paid industry hack for the mesh companies and he is trying to reduce the award the jury should give her.

LIE, LIE, LIE! Boy, did you see how long Dr. Davila's nose has grown? He's not going to be able to get in his car if it grows any longer.

KENNETH KEETON, MY DADDY, MY HERO! AND HIS YOUNGER BROTHER, HORACE KEETON!

Two great guys fought in World War II in the Phillipines. One came home. The other did not. Never met Uncle Horace. Always saw his picture on the wall next to the light switch by the door at Ma Keeton's house. Handsome guy. That's all I really know about him, except that he is buried a few feet from my Daddy, next to his Mom and Dad.

That's what war does. Takes away lives at such young ages, children and grand children never know them.

My Daddy, Kenneth, and My Uncle, Horace, were honorable men who fought for, died for and protected this country. Daddy came home but the war was always with him. I know that now but never understood it when I was growing up.

I just know he loved me, he loved my Mama and he loved my brothers. He loved us and provided for us and protected us. He was a great man who fought for this United States of America. God bless America, God bless my Uncle Horace and God bless my Daddy, Kenneth!!
