JOHNSON & JOHNSON, DEAD WOMEN AND THE FDA CONNECTION

What government allows over 100,000 women to be injured by a "Medical Device", Synthetic Surgical Mesh, for pelvic organ prolapse and bladder suspenson?

SURPRISE!! The good ole U.S. of A!

Yes, your government works in collusion with the major medical device manufacturers allowing "Medical Devices" to be sold to all hospitals and doctors in the United States of America that ARE NOT SAFE!

The Prolift pelvic mesh kit was placed on the market by Ethicon, Inc. a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, in 2005 based on a letter the employees wrote to themselves and placed in their own file that NO CLEARANCE WAS REQUIRED BY THE FDA!

WHAT???

However, when they did file for clearance through the 510(k) Premarket Notification Clearance process of the Prolift +M in 2007, there was a HICCUP!

It took Johnson & Johnson/Ethicon a year but finally after many back and forth revisions to the Prolift+M, both the original Prolift and the Prolift+M were cleared under a 510(k) by the FDA's CDRH with a little help from their "special friend", Dr. David Krause, a Branch Chief at the CDRH.

More to come on the "special friend" as the RICO Civil Claim, 1:15-cv-20442 in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida unfolds.

As to the DEAD WOMEN, no lawsuit will bring them back to life. Just ask Robert Fish about his Mother committing suicide in the back yard, slitting her wrists and then shooting herself in the heart, to be sure she did not survive her own suicide. Or ask the family of Joy Poteet and the many others who we will never know their names because JOHNSON & JOHNSON/ETHICON redacted their names from the Med Watch Reports they filed with the FDA.

How long is our government going to facilitate the ongoing slaughter of innocent women who go to their doctor to be well but wind up dead?

At this rate, for many years to come.

PLAINTIFF PRO SE LANA C.

SHAPIRO, ARNSTEIN & LEHR, LLP TO ECF 48 NOTICE OF JOINDER, CLEVELAND CLINIC DEFENDANTS; And TO ECF 49 NOTICE OF ADOPTON, NEVILLE M. LESLIE

"THE FACTS AS ACTUALLY PRESENTED IN THE COMPLAINT"

"Although Plaintiff is characterized by Defendants in this case as having mythical legal skills, those skills are highly exaggerated. Plaintiff Pro Se Lana C. Keeton is simply a woman inspired by the movie, “Amazing Grace”, the story of Wilhelm Wilberforce, a member of the British parliament who spent 36 years of his life to stop the slave trade in England, who is seeking justice for the crimes committed against her regardless of the time and energy and commitment it takes.

Defendants conspiracy in the crimes they have committed, and continue to commit, in their association in fact RICO enterprise, damaged Plaintiff’s business and property when they defrauded her and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, an arm of the government, through the testimony of Dr. G. Willy Davila, an employee of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation under the supervision of Dr. Delos Cosgrove at the medical negligence trial in December 2009.

The Bankruptcy Trustee did abandon the Product Liability lawsuit in September 2007, after Defendants Johnson & Johnson, Ethicon, Inc., Gynecare Worldwide, Jeffrey B. Shapiro, Neville M. Leslie and Arnstein & Lehr, LLP defrauded the Bankruptcy Court in their Motion for Summary Judgment in Case 1:06-cv-21116-UU Document 138-1 Entered on FLSD Docket 07/23/2007 rendering the claim worthless.

The medical negligence claim against Dr. Bernard Cantor and Mt. Sinai Medical Center was an asset in the Bankruptcy Case No. 03-16521 and was not abandoned by the Bankruptcy Trustee, Mr. Drew Dillworth. Dr. G. Willy Davila testified at the medical negligence trial in December 2009 and made false statements in violation of U.S.C. 1603 to the Honorable State Court of Florida, the Plaintiff, the Bankruptcy Court, attorney Darryn Silverstein, an officer of the court, and the jurors.

The verdict awarded to Trustee Dillworth and Plaintiff Keeton, $275,000.00, only paid $30,000.00 to the creditors of the Keeton Bankruptcy after attorney costs and fees, which included business creditors to Lana C. Keeton in the amount of over $203,000.00 on a bi-monthly basis. The loss of the credit availability to Keeton’s 30 year old steel brokerage eventually led to the complete closing of the business in April 2013, which at one time had grossed more than one million dollars ($1,000,000.00) yearly."

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.

Yours truly,

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.

-ATRA-
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!
