MASS TORTS MADE PERFECT....FOR WHO? BIG PHARMA & PLAINTIFF'S ATTORNEYS & DEFENSE ATTORNEYS - - NOT THE INJURED PLAINTIFFS!

MULTI DISTRICT LITIGATION and MASS TORTS are an attorney's dream. It may take millions of dollars to prosecute but with thousands and thousands of injured plaintiffs in the pools, the Return on Investment is spectacular.

Defense Attorneys have boiler plate defenses they have honed over the years. They fight tooth and nail and DON'T PAY until the absolute end of the presiding judge's patience.

CONFIDENTIALITY REIGNS!

No INJURED PLAINTIFF will ever know what happens as the years drag by, their medical needs grow, they lose their jobs, their homes, their families, their friends. They lose EVERYTHING!

So the giant money making MULTI DISTRICT LITIGATION MACHINE grinds on, protecting the profits of the companies, the jobs of the doctors and the multimillion dollar incomes of ALL the attorneys, plaintiff and defense.

MASS TORTS ARE NOT MADE PERFECT FOR THE INJURED PLAINTIFFS!

BAD LAWS, BAD DRUGS, BAD DEVICES & GREED. SO WHO WILL BE THE NEXT PROMINENT CLASS ACTION ATTORNEY LIKE STANLEY CHESLEY DISBARRED FOR SKIMMING A SETTLEMENT FUND?

FOUR HUNDRED (400) PLAINTIFFS GOT $46 MILLION DOLLARS.

ONE (1) ATTORNEY, STANLEY CHESLEY GOT PAID $20 MILLION DOLLARS FOR HIS INVOLVEMENT IN THE SETTLEMENT NEGOTIATIONS ONLY...HE DID NOT EVEN APPEAR AT TRIAL. HE LOST HIS LICENSE TO PRACTICE LAW BUT DID NOT HAVE TO REPAY THE MONEY.

THE PATIENTS WERE PAWNS IN THIS CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT WHERE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WERE PAID IN CONFIDENTIAL SETTLEMENTS AND EVEN THE JUDGE COLLUDED WITH THE ATTORNEYS.

HOW DO PATIENTS KNOW THEY ARE RECEIVING THEIR FAIR SHARE OF SETTLEMENTS IN CLASS ACTIONS AND MASS TORTS?  ANSWER: THEY DON'T.

JUST LIKE HEALTHCARE, PATIENTS WHO BECOME PLAINTIFFS ARE IN THE DARK WITH LITTLE OR NO INFLUENCE OVER A MAJOR LIFE ALTERING EVENT.

WE CAN ONLY HOPE THERE ARE NOT ANY "STANLEY CHESLEYS" IN THE ONGOING HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN THE TRANSVAGINAL MESH SETTLEMENTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY! BUT DON'T COUNT ON IT. WITH ETHICON & WELLS FARGO IN THE MIX THERE ARE BOUND TO BE SOME NEW "CRASHES & BURNS".

Bloomberg Business Week 03/22/2013 by Paul Barrett, assistant managing editor and senior writer.  

"STANLEY CHESLEY, TITAN OF THE PLAINTIFF'S BAR, CRASHES AND BURNS" 

The big-time plaintiffs’ bar justifies its multimillion-dollar fees by claiming to vindicate the “little guy.” Justice ain’t free, according to free-wheeling trial lawyers, and taking on (alleged) corporate villains requires heavy pecuniary incentives.

Sadly, the titans of this elite segment of the bar have a tendency to flame out in spectacular bursts of greed and deceit, undercutting their claims of righteous dedication. The latest example is famed class-action attorney Stanley Chesley of Cincinnati, for decades one of the leading scourges of industries that range from pharmaceuticals, to chemicals, to firearms.

The Kentucky Supreme Court on March 21 upheld Chesley’s disbarment in that state for “unreasonable” fees received in the settlement of a class action originally filed in 1999 against Wyeth, now part of Pfizer. The allegation stemmed from $20 million in fees Chesley received for his involvement in an action concerning the diet drug known as fen-phen (fenfluramine/phentermine), which was shown to cause harmful side effects. The case was settled in 2001 for $200 million.

Under Ohio’s Rules of Professional Responsibility for lawyers, the disbarment in Kentucky may provide grounds for Chesley to get drummed out of the legal trade in his home state, as well.

Here’s a helpful description of Chesley’s troubles from Bloomberg News:

“In 2009, two Kentucky lawyers involved in the case were sentenced to 20 years and 25 years in prison for stealing from the [diet drug] settlement fund. The lawyers had contracts entitling them to fees of as much as one-third of the $200 million awarded to a statewide group of Kentucky citizens who said they were harmed by diet drug. The lawyers tried to keep more than twice that amount, prosecutors said.


In its 38-page decision, the Kentucky Supreme Court noted that Chesley didn’t meet directly with any of the clients to effectuate the settlement, and it wasn’t shown that he had specific knowledge of the deception practiced on each client to secure the signed release.

The court did find that his “$20,497,121.87 share of the fee was unreasonable, especially in light of his professed ignorance and lack of responsibility for any aspect of the litigation except showing up at the mediation and going through the motions of announcing the agreement.”


BE SURE TO READ THE WHOLE STORY AT BLOOMBERG...IT'S WAY TOO JUICY TO MISS!

FROM MY PERSPECTIVE AS A PATIENT, A PATIENT ADVOCATE AND A LEGAL CONSULTANT, THIS IS A MESS CREATED BY BAD LAWS, BAD DRUGS AND DEVICES AND GREED. IT IS A SYSTEMIC ISSUE CREATED BY THE AMERICAN HEALTHCARE SYSTEM WHICH DOES NOT PROTECT PATIENTS.

MY ADVICE: STAY WELL, STAY OUT OF THE HOSPITAL AND DON'T TAKE DRUGS UNLESS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. YOU MAY BE UNKNOWINGLY HARMING YOURSELF!

BEST, BLESSINGS, LANA

EVIL IN THE COURT ROOM: LITIGATING WOMEN'S HEALTH TO BENEFIT BIG PHARMA

92,922 WOMEN IN WEST VIRGINIA MULTIDISTRICT LITIGATION, EGREGIOUSLY INJURED BY POLYPROPYLENE MESH FOR BLADDER SUSPENSION AND PELVIC ORGAN PROLAPSE REPAIR, HAVE BEEN USED BY PLAINTIFF'S ATTORNEYS TO LITIGATE WOMEN'S HEALTH....BACK TO THE DARK AGES.

ABDOMINAL SACRAL COLPOPEXY HAS BEEN "PROVEN" A BETTER, SAFER ALTERNATIVE TO TRANSVAGINAL PLACEMENT OF MESH.

BOTH CAUSE SEVERE HARM!

PLEASE READ THE POIGNANT INSTRUCTIVE PIECE WRITTEN BY DEBORAH LANE SMITH, HERSELF A SEVERELY INJURED SACRAL COLPOPEXY VICTIM, WHO WAS FURTHER HORRIFICLY INJURED WHEN DR. JOHN "MESH" MIKLOS NICKED HER BOWEL WHILE LAPAROSCOPICALLY ATTEMPTING TO REMOVE MESH.

56.000 SICKENED BY EGGS, EXECS GO TO JAIL; 100,000 WOMEN PERMANENTLY INJURED BY TRANSVAGINAL MESH, EXECS SCOT FREE

JAIL TIME FOR TRANSVAGINAL MESH EXECS WILL NEVER HAPPEN. WHY?

PLAINTIFF'S ATTORNEYS FOR THE OVER 100,000 WOMEN PERMANENTLY INJURED BY TRANSVAGINAL MESH "DON'T WANT TO KILL THE COMPANY".

IN OTHER WORDS, DON'T TURN OFF THE SPIGOT OF CASES AND DECADES LONG $MULTI-MILLION$ $DOLLAR$ $SETTLEMENTS$ CREATED BY MESH INJURED WOMEN.

TOTALLY SICKENING, DISGUSTING THAT SO MANY (NOT ALL) MISOGYNISTIC MEN AND WOMEN ATTORNEYS DO NOT PROTECT ANYONE BUT THEMSELVES AND THEIR GREEDY POCKETBOOKS.

8th Circ. Upholds Jail Terms For Egg Execs Over Salmonella By Martin O'Sullivan Law360, New York (July 6, 2016, 3:41 PM ET) --

An Eighth Circuit panel on Wednesday upheld the jail terms for two Iowa egg magnates whose company was tied to a nationwide salmonella outbreak, saying the sentences were not disproportionate considering some 56,000 people got sick.

A split panel affirmed U.S. District Judge Mark Bennett’s decision that Quality Egg LLC owner Austin “Jack” DeCoster and his son, Chief Operating Officer Peter DeCoster, must spend three months each in jail and pay $100,000 apiece due to a 2010 salmonella outbreak that caused a 550 million egg recall...

Johnson & Johnson is a multibillion dollar worldwide corporation headed by a group of thugs who have no compunction whatsoever when they daily destroy millions of lives, men, women and children. Johnson & Johnson is a cancerous entity, a blight on humanity.

#DeadWomenMatter @JNJ @JNJNews @JNJCares @AlexGorsky @Ethicon @Mentor @JNJInnovations #CleanUpYourMesh #JNJCriminalCorporation

Question Number 1: how many will profit from the cancerous products distributed worldwide by J&J?

1) THE FDA
2) MEMBERS OF THE POLITICAL ELITE
3) OTHER MAJOR CORPORATIONS INVESTING IN J&J, SUCH AS STATE FARM AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE COMPANY
3) DOCTORS
4) HOSPITALS
5) DRUGSTORES
6) THE COURT SYSTEMS
7) ATTORNEYS: PLAINTIFF & DEFENSE

Question Number 2: Who loses from the deadly drugs and devices manufactured and distributed worldwide by Johnson & Johnson?

Yes, you guessed it!!

1) ONLY YOU THE CONSUMER!!!

TODAY ALONE THESE ARE HEADLINES FROM THE LEGAL WORLD FROM LAW 360...HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS ARE INJURED & NO ONE, ABSOLUTELY NO ONE, HOLDS JOHNSON & JOHNSON ACCOUNTABLE.

JOHNSON & JOHNSON RULES THE WORLD!

“Vaginal Mesh MDL Judge Sick And Tired Of Bogus Suits By Steven Trader Law360, New York “ (September 7, 2016, 7:59 PM ET) -- The Georgia federal judge overseeing multidistrict litigation that alleges a Johnson & Johnson unit's defective pelvic mesh implants caused painful infections warned plaintiffs counsel Wednesday that frivolous lawsuits will no longer be tolerated and could trigger sanctions.

U.S. District Chief Judge Clay D. Land said he has spent a considerable amount of time and judicial resources deciding summary judgments in consumer lawsuits against Mentor Corp. that plaintiffs counsel should have dismissed earlier or that should have never been brought in the first place. “Enough is enough,”...
“J&J Talc Suits Show Evidence Standards Vary Among Courts By Emily Field Law360, New York” (September 7, 2016, 5:49 PM ET) -- A New Jersey state judge's decision to toss two suits alleging that Johnson & Johnson's talcum-based products caused ovarian cancer on the heels of two major trial losses for the company in similar cases highlights the different views courts have taken on the validity of scientific evidence linking talc to the disease.

Months after Missouri state juries slammed J&J with $55 million and $72 million verdicts in suits claiming that the company's talc products caused two women to develop ovarian cancer, a New Jersey state judge found...
“J&J Hit With More Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Claims By Shayna Posses Law360, New York” (September 7, 2016, 7:54 PM ET) -- A Louisiana woman became the latest to allege that Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder products caused her to develop ovarian cancer in a proposed class action filed in federal court Wednesday, days after a New Jersey state judge tossed two actions making similar claims.

Shintelle Joseph joined the slew of consumers suing over J&J's talcum powder products, contending in her Louisiana federal court suit that the company touted the products as a safe and gentle way to reduce odor and moisture all over the body without warning...

MEDICAL MESH: 2 DECADES of MASSIVE HEALTHCARE FRAUD against WOMEN! Compliments of J&J and ETHICON!


February 13, 1997 Ethicon signed an agreement with Dr. Ulf Ulmsten in Uppsala, Sweden for “GOOD OUTCOMES” in an extremely limited clinical trial (75 women) for Ethicon’s Gynecare TVT Prolene polypropylene Bladder Suspension Sling. To wit, Ulmsten would not be paid if the “clinical trial” (a term loosely used here because of the fraud involved) did not show "benefits" rather than the egregious harm it causes.

ETHICON'S GYNECARE TVT & PROLIFT PROLENE(Polypropylene) Mesh Bladder Sling & Pelvic Organ Prolapse repair kits are the BIGGEST LIE EVER PERPETRATED on WOMEN!

Today @AlexGorsky CEO of Johnson & Johnson continues the massive misogynistic fraud against women. Totally disgusting and the man, along with many others at @JNJ and @Ethicon, should be in jail for the rest of their lives. Or better yet, they should all be implanted with their trademark Prolene mesh and suffer intolerable pain in their private parts for the rest of their lives as hundreds of thousands of women worldwide suffer today.

Now 999 women plaintiffs in Ethicon’s Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) Case No. 02327 in the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia (total number of cases is 34,002….YES, thirty four thousand and two women who live in intolerable pain) under the Honorable Judge Joseph Goodwin are receiving intimidating coercive letters, "settle for this amount of money or else". Or else go before the Special Master who will have absolute final say over your settlement > > NO APPEAL < < and take your chances the Special Master might actually pay you to compensate for your intolerable pain, the fact that you can't sit, can't walk, can't have sex, can't urinate or defecate, can't work, have unending incurable infections and/or have an insufferable autoimmune disease. 999 women offered a total of $112 million, minus 40% attorney fees = $44.8 million; minus 5% Common Benefits Fund attorney fees = $5.6 million = $61.6 million divide by 999 women plaintiffs = $61,661.66 MAYBE....cause it could also be minus the individual attorney's costs = ?? minus unpaid medical bills for surgeries, etc ?? JOHNSON & JOHNSON makes $12-$13 BILLION DOLLARS ANNUALLY IN PROFIT. $112 MILLION DOLLARS IN SETTLEMENT FOR 999 WOMEN IS LESS THAN 1% OF 1 YEARS PROFIT FOR THE CRIMINAL CORPORATION JOHNSON & JOHNSON. JOHNSON & JOHNSON, ETHICON'S MASSIVE FRAUD AGAINST WOMEN CONTINUES UNABATED! IT'S GUTSY AND IT'S RISKY BUT MAYBE, JUST MAYBE....CONSIDER IT CAREFULLY....YOU WRITE TO JUDGE GOODWIN and TELL HIM CONFIDENTIALLY UNDER SEAL WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU INDIVIDUALLY. HE WILL RESPOND AND HE WILL DO THE RIGHT THING. HE CAN DO NOTHING WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU. THE LAWS & THE LEGAL STRUCTURE OF MULTIDISTRICT LITIGATION > > PREVENTS < < JUDGE JOSEPH GOODWIN FROM HAVING KNOWLEDGE OF THE FUNDS AVAILABLE FOR ANY SETTLEMENT AND/OR THE PARTICULARS OF THE SETTLEMENT.


ONLY THE PLAINTIFFS ATTORNEYS AND THE DEFENSE ATTORNEYS HAVE ACTUAL REAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE MONEY BEING PAID IN TOTAL AND TO EACH INDIVIDUAL CLAIMANT! WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THAT?


STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR YOURSELF!!! THIS IS NOT OKAY!!!

HEALTHCARE: THE INSTITUTIONALIZED LIE from YOUR FRIENDS AT THE FDA AND JOHNSON & JOHNSON, C.R. BARD, AMERICAN MEDICAL SYSTEMS, BOSTON SCIENTIFIC



Healthcare: The Institutionalized Lie.

The Lie that kills humans.

The Lie that dehumanizes humans.

The Lie that makes Doctors "Learned Intermediaries" who can knowingly prescribe killer medications and implant killer medical devices without telling you and YOU have no recourse.

The Lie that created "Tort Reform" so Doctors are above the law.

The Lie that created "Daubert expert testimony" making lawsuits too expensive for most attorneys to pursue.

Healthcare: The Institutionalized Lie that allows Criminal Corporations to Kill and Harm Humans with NO accountability.
