STOP THE MADNESS! PROLIFT GYNEMESH PELVIC ORGAN PROLAPSE MESH KITS AND DEPUYASR METAL-ON-METAL HIP IMPLANTS DESTROY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS WHILE J&J DENIES LIABILITY!
Press Releases for verdicts in trials are written in the most sterile language. None of them are written as though there are humans injured in the process. The companies...in particular, Johnson & Johnson....have never done anything wrong. There are 96,000 people worldwide implanted, and suffering with, these ASR metal-on-metal hip implants, they have recalled them and THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG?
This makes me think of Al Pacino in the movie "The Devils Advocate" with Keanu Reeves. The devil has sold everyone out AND THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG?
What planet do these people live on? Are they humans who live on this Earth? All this "SPEAK" is for Wall Street so their stock does not lose value.
But really, how does this happen day after day after day? These people have definitely sold their souls to the devil.
Let's put Christy Jones at the top of the list. She stands there day after day presenting a case against Linda Gross.
Does Christy Jones go home and take off her skin like David Bowie in "The Man Who Fell to Earth" a 1976 sci-fi flick ? (Guess that dates me for sure. How many reading this ever heard of, much less saw, that movie? See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Man_Who_Fell_to_Earth_(film) for the plot.)
INSANITY! What else could it be? Cause this is NOT NORMAL!!!
THESE ARE SICK "HUMAN" BEINGS WHO PREY ON OTHER HUMANS IN THE NAME OF "HEALTHCARE".
OH PLEASE, SOMEONE STOP THE MADNESS!

FLASH: Jury deems J&J's DePuy ASR XL hip implant defective in design, orders $8.3M in damages
Johnson & Johnson defends its DePuy subsidiary's ASR XL hip devices after a California jury finds that the metal-on-metal implants were defectively designed, awarding plaintiff Loren Kransky $8.3 million in compensatory damages.
A California jury ruled against Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) and its DePuy subsidiary in finding that the company's ASR XL metal-on-metal hip implant was defectively designed.
The decision marks the highly anticipated close of the 1st of more than 10,750 such lawsuits against J&J. The jury dismissed claims that J&J failed to properly warn physicians about the risks of its metal hip implants, but ruled that the company was negligent and ordered J&J to pay $8.3 million in damages to patient Loren Kransky.
J&J issued a statement today defending its hip implant design and noting that it plans to appeal the ruling, adding that the jury rejected the plaintiff's claim for punitive damages on top of compensatory damages.
"We believe ASR XL was properly designed, and that DePuy's actions concerning the product were appropriate and responsible," DePuy spokeswoman Lorie Gawreluk said in prepared remarks. "We plan to appeal the jury's decision on design defect pending the outcome of post-trial motions. We believe we have a number of valid grounds for appeal, notably that the court didn't let the company tell the jury about the Food & Drug Administration's review and clearance of the device."
Johnson & Johnson pulled the DePuy ASR device in 2010 on reports of an abnormally high number of revision surgeries, later revealing that the recall cost it $271 million during the 1st quarter last year. An internal company study found that 1 in 3 metal hips could fail in less than 5 years, according to testimony in the Kransky case unveiled in January.
And regulators in the U.S. have launched a probe into possible marketing violations for the ASR hip
