Charles Zimmerman, founding partner at Zimmerman Reed and member of the Stryker Lead Counsel Committee, talks to the Star Tribune about the Stryker hip recall settlement.
Zimmerman Reed filed the first motion to the Judicial Panel on Multi-district Litigation (JPML) to consolidate all Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip claims to a single federal judge in Minnesota. On June 12, 2013, the JPML granted Zimmerman Reed’s motion and transferred all 41 Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II hip replacement lawsuits initially filed in federal court and any future federal claims to Judge Donovan Frank who is presiding over the Multidistrict Litigation (MDL). Read the Transfer Order. Judge Frank appointed Charles Zimmerman as one of the lead attorneys assigned to represent Stryker plaintiffs across the nation in the MDL.
