DOMINOES, DOMINOES, DOMINOES…
THEY JUST KEEP FALLING

IS PELVIC MESH MULTIDISTRICT LITIGATION 
IMPLODING AS PLAINTIFF’S ATTORNEYS 
CORRUPTION IS EXPOSED?

Why do I ask this question? Because of various civil lawsuits against Pelvic Mesh Plaintiff’s Attorneys alleging legal malpractice and criminal indictments for fraud against a Urogynecologist and a Medical Funder by the Department of Justice. Serious stuff.

MY PERSONAL OPINION –
THE MASSIVE PELVIC MESH MDL’S HAVE BECOME A DISASTER.
1.      Outright Theft from Plaintiffs by Forced Consent to Dismissal Without Prejudice pursuant to Pretrial Order 293, Ethicon MDL 02327.
2.      Violation of Plaintiff’s Rights to Due Process under the 5th and/or 14th Amendments
3.      Potential Mental Disorders of Plaintiff’s Attorneys in Power over all the Pelvic Mesh MDL’s Non-Steering Committee Plaintiffs Attorneys.
4.      Rampant Willful Blindness, a criminal state of mind as defined by the Supreme Court,  throughout the Multidistrict Litigations in the Federal Court System has drawn the attention of the U.S. House of Representatives, who passed HR 985 in February of 2017.    And the U.S. Senate where Senator Charles Grassley introduced legislation S. 2815 To Increase Transparency and Oversight of 3rd Party Litigation Funding, on May 10, 2018.
And the Department of Justice filing charges on May 24, 2019 against “Wesley Blake Barber, 49, of Detroit, Michigan, the owner of Surgical Assistance Inc. and Medical Funding Consultants LLC, and Christopher Walker, M.D., 49, of Orlando, Florida, and owner of MedSurg Holdings LLC, in an indictment filed in the Eastern District of New York with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, three counts of wire fraud, one count of conspiracy to violate the Travel Act and one count of violating the Travel Act.
5.      Gaslightingis used to manipulate Mesh Injured Plaintiff Clients, who are isolated, warned not to communicate anything to anyone about their lawsuit and easily abused by their own attorney because of their lack of knowledge of the law. Gaslighting is “a form of manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or members of a group, hoping to make targets question their own memory, perception, and sanity. Using persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction, and lying, it attempts to destabilize the target and delegitimize the target’s belief.”
Usage: “Sociopaths and narcissists frequently use gaslighting tactics. Sociopaths consistently transgress social mores, break laws, and exploit others, but typically also are convincing liars, sometimes charming ones, who consistently deny wrongdoing.”
6.      Outright Theft of Plaintiffs Settlement Money by Attorneys Manipulation and Abuse of  Qualified Settlement Funds under IRS 468 B where there is no forensic accounting.
7.      Double dipping of cases. Are settlements paid by Defendants to Plaintiffs Attorneys, who don’t equitably distribute those IRS 468 B settlement funds to their own Plaintiff Clients, then placing the very same case on the docket again? QSF’s are ripe for Plaintiff Abuse.

It is a tragic state of affairs when trust is placed in the laws of the United States and in our Court System and in attorneys who violate their fiduciary duty to prey on innocent injured Plaintiff Clients. Fortunately some Attorneys are now filing legal malpractice lawsuits against those Attorneys exposing those who abused their very own Plaintiff Clients, in State and Federal
Court.                                                 
DISCLAIMER:
IF YOU RECEIVED THIS, PLEASE UNDERSTAND I RESPECT AND APPRECIATE THE HONEST PELVIC MESH PLAINTIFFS ATTORNEYS WHO FIGHT EVERY DAY FOR THEIR PLAINTIFF CLIENTS. NONE OF THIS IS DIRECTED AT THEM OR IN ANY WAY IS INTENDED TO INSULT THE HONEST PEOPLE WHO DEDICATE THEIR LIVES TO FIGHTING FOR THEIR CLIENTS.

The Good News is, not all Attorneys are corrupt 
or willfully blind to the 
massive disaster of the Pelvic Mesh MDL’s.

Thank you to:
ADAM SLATER - MAZIE, SLATER, KATZ & FREEMAN LLC, ROSELAND, NJ

Mazie, Slater, Katz and Freeman LLC filed Master Case No.BER-L-11575-14 for lead plaintiff Debbie Gore and approximately 1,450 Proposed Class Members, a verified Class Action Complaint in the Superior court of New Jersey, Bergen County on June 10, 2019 before Judge Rachelle Harz.

It alleges legal malpractice, breach of fiduciary duty and unjust enrichment against all defendants for their actions in the Pelvic Mesh MDL in New Jersey against numerous law firms and attorneys at those law firms for mismanagement of the basics:
1.      Retainer agreements
2.      Attorney fees
3.      Expenses
4.      Improper sharing of Attorney Fees

Defendant Law Firms:
Nagel Rice, LLP, Roseland, New Jersey; The Potts Law Firm, Houston,Texas and Missouri;
Bailey Peavy Bailey Cowan Heckaman, Houston, Texas; Mesh Litigation Center, Houston, Texas; Steelman McAdams, Houston, Texas; Junell & Associates, Houston, Texas; Burnett Law Firm, Houston, Texas

Defendant Attorneys:
Bruce Nagel, Nagel Rice, LLP;  Robert Solomon, Nagel Rice, LLP; Andrew O’Connor, Nagel Rice, LLP; Derek Potts, The Potts Law Firm; Annie McAdams, Steelman McAdams

These Defendants are alleged to have violated New Jersey’s strict rules of the courts concerning fees and retainer agreements, such as:  
1.      Invalid Retainer Agreements because the defendants either has not signed agreements with local counsel in New Jersey or the women
2.      Attorney’s Fees of 40% which is over New Jersey limits of a firm’s percentage to 33.3%
3.      Improper Sharing of legal fees
4.      Deducting attorney’s fees off the top from the gross recovery while deducting expenses from the plaintiff’s portion of recovery which in effect stole money from the plaintiff
5.      Paying settlement dollars  to unauthorized recipient law firms
6.      Non-retained legal counsel making filings or appearances for plaintiffs
7.      Improper deduction of legal fees and/or expenses from plaintiffs

This is outrageous behavior of these Attorneys and their Law Firms, licensed Officers of the Court, who instead of prosecuting the lawsuits for their Plaintiffs, are simply preying on the Plaintiffs.

This information is drawn from the original complaint filed in Superior Court of New Jersey, Bergen County. Errors or omissions are unintentional. Author would appreciate notification if any errors or omissions are noted.
