Jason Johnston Appointed to the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for Stryker LFIT V40 MDL

Zimmerman Reed partner Jason Johnston was appointed to the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the Stryker LFIT V40 multidistrict litigation (MDL). Judge Indira Talwani, who is presiding over the litigation in the District of Massachusetts, appointed Jason after a thorough vetting process that included applications submitted by firms from across the nation. The litigation follows a recall involving the Stryker LFIT V40 femoral heads because of a higher than expected failure rate resulting in the need for additional surgery.
