WILL FEDERAL JUDGE JOSEPH R. GOODWIN BE THE NEXT WEST VIRGINIA JUDGE TO BE SENTENCED TO PRISON AFTER STATE OF WEST VIRGINIA SUPREME COURT JUDGE'S FRAUD LED TO PRISON SENTENCE. PROBABLY.

So what is the difference between the crimes committed by West Virginia Supreme Court Justice Allen Loughry II and Judge Joseph R. Goodwin? Judge Goodwin has not been charged yet. 

Pelvic Mesh Litigation in the Southern District of West Virginia under the authority of Judge Joseph R. Goodwin, presiding, is Mass Tort Litigation at its worst.

GOODWIN forced PELVIC BRUTALIZATION OF 13,000 WOMEN.

THE WANTON DISREGARD OF THE RULE OF LAW GOES UNREPORTED BY THE MEDIA.

Judicial bullying of over 104,000 Mesh Injured Women Plaintiffs by Judge Goodwin, in favor of the Defendants and their Defense Attorneys and the Plaintiff’s Attorneys is an outrage.

 1)  PTO 293 13,000 “Non-Revision Plaintiffs were dismissed without prejudice.

Over 13,000 Mesh Injured Women Plaintiffs were summarily dismissed without prejudice by decision of Judge Joseph R. Goodwin through the vehicle of Pretrial Order No. 293, Ethicon MDL 02327, by renaming them as “Non-Revisions Plaintiffs”, an absurd abdication of legal authority.

 The Pretrial Order does not allow “Non-Revision Plaintiffs” to re-file their cases for one year, gives them up to five years to re-file IF, and only IF, the “Non-Revision Plaintiffs” undergo defined medical treatment(s) prescribed by the Court based on motion practice by Plaintiff and Defense Attorneys, all of whom are non-medical professionals.

Synthetic Surgical Mesh implantation is a highly invasive injurious procedure. Explantation (removal) of Synthetic Surgical Mesh, as ordered by Judge Goodwin,  is barbaric, requiring the removal of each and every single “Non-Revision Plaintiff’s” own native tissue (like cutting gum from hair) in order to remove the Mesh itself. 

 

2.     2)  PTO 325 FORCED APPEARANCE of 164 Mesh Injured Women Plaintiffs in Judge Goodwin’s court room in Charleston, West Virginia. These women were forced to have their cases transferred into West Virginia by the JPML, regardless of where they actually lived. NO expert or witness or any other person is forced to travel more than 100 miles by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 26, yet Judge Goodwin judicially bullied permanently severely Mesh Injured Women Plaintiffs to appear in HIS COURT ROOM or have their cases dismiss

3)  3) Over 4,000 Caldera Mesh Injured Women Plaintiffs were judicially bullied into a Class Action “Settlement” of only $18 million dollars, no trial, no discovery, no adjudication of the facts. Why were these women ever included in an MDL in the Southern District of West Virginia if there was no discovery, if there were no bellwether trials?

While claiming transparency in his latest Orders.…. the only transparency apparent to outsiders looking in is the MASSIVE CORRUPTION in the 7 Multidistrict Litigations (MDL’s) under Goodwin's authority. Plaintiffs Attorneys steal from their own Plaintiff Clients. The Fee and Cost Committee (FCC), 8 attorney firms and William H. McKee, a decades long friend of Judge Goodwin, appointed by Judge Goodwin, stole from 86 other firms, their plaintiff clients and Lana C. Keeton, Non-Lawyer Objector Plaintiff Pro Se in the latest version of “Theft by Allocation”.

CORRUPTION? YOU BET! MORE TO COME!

Sunday, August 16, 2020

SOCIOPATH ATTORNEY HENRY G. GARRARD, III LOW-LIFE. BOTTOM FEEDING. SCUMBAG. THIEF. LIAR. KING OF FALSE EVIDENCE. ENEMY OF ANY PLAINTIFF, HIS OR ANY OTHERS. SHOULD BE DIS-BARRED & PROSECUTED UNDER RICO STATUTES. GARRARD IS A DANGER TO SOCIETY



LANA C. KEETON
STILL STANDING UP FOR THE RULE OF LAW & EQUAL JUSTICE FOR PLAINTIFFS, NOT MASSIVE ABUSE BY ATTORNEY GARRARD &  CO-CONSPIRATORS!


MR. DESPICABLE.. HENRY GARRARD III

"In a 1987 seminar for defense attorneys entitled ‘‘State of the Art Defense: Is it Real?,’’ Henry Garrard III, a defense attorney, described how defense counsel should use the SOA defense in asbestos litigation:
Although OSHA is a creation of the 1970’s, the basic mindset of the general public is that the government has been involved intricately in control of workplace exposures almost forever. Most of the people today have not grown up in an atmosphere that did not include significant government involvement. This can become a play for state-of-the-art throughout Probably the final thing to consider is the necessity to warn and the different timings of warnings is to attempt to get the jury to place themselves back in the 1960’s, 50’s, and 40’s with the realization that times were different and expectations were different. Human factors experts or historians in general may be experts that we as defense lawyers have overlooked which might be helpful in making these presentations. Additionally, industrial hygienists who are not medical doctors probably should be used to a greater extent than they are used now to show the newness of that field and how they in fact rely upon the threshold limit value concept in general. After all, the threshold limit value concept is probably the best thing the defense has in its arsenal.
The asbestos product manufacturer courtroom defense is also based on the argument that manu- facturers and downstream companies that used or  sold products had no duty to warn of hazards and  thus have no liability if their products resulted in exposures were under the TLV. This defense tries to convince juries that the TLV was statutory  rather than voluntary and that the government would have intervened to protect workers and the public had the industry’s products exceeded this limit. Essentially they argue that mere existence of a proposed safe level (the TLV) allowed them to escape liability that resulted from injuries that occurred to workers who were exposed to asbestos or asbestos-containing products that the industries sold. However, because the TLV was not health protective for either asbestosis or lung cancer, the companies must also contest the historical acceptance of the asbestos– cancer relationship.

As early as 1976, the AIA – an organization of asbestos product manufacturers and fiber suppliers – gathered to design the SOA defense. The defense was dependent upon the work that MetLife and others had previously done to cover up important cancer and TLV information. The AIA formed a ‘‘Legal/ Medical Research Program’’ and stated that ‘‘the primary purpose of the Legal/Medical Research Program is to improve the quality of defenses for asbestos companies involved in third party liability suits in tort.’’ [emphasis added]

They hired Philip Enterline, a professor of biostatistics at the University of Pittsburgh, to conduct a literature review that could be used to contest the date of the acceptance of the asbestos–cancer relationship. This paper would help the companies establish that their reliance on the TLV had been reasonable if they could show the medical and scientific community did not accept the relationship between asbestos and cancer until the 1964 Selikoff conference. At the time the asbestos companies concocted this defense, it was known that exposures after 1964 would not have contributed to any pre- 1980 mesothelioma cases due to the twenty-year latency period between exposure and disease manifestation.

By hiring Enterline, the industry successfully developed a SOA defense that only focused on public knowledge published in the United States, ignoring both the European consensus that asbestos was a carcinogen and the unpublished information about cancer that the companies hid from the public for decades. In effect, the companies hired Enterline to ‘‘discover’’ what they could have known had they read the US literature during the time periods in question. The companies withheld all their own studies from Enterline, including the studies that  Dr.  Leroy Gardner conducted at the Saranac  Laboratories  in  the 1930s. Detailed in our previous paper, Gardner’s experiments found an 81.8% tumor incidence in mice exposed to asbestos. MetLife and the brake manufacturing companies agreed that this information should be deleted from the final publication of Gardner’s research (1951) after his death. Despite the withheld information, Enterline’s original monograph, which was given to the AIA in 1978, but not published until 1991, stated that: ‘‘Few authors ever expressed doubt about the relationship between this rare tumor [mesothelioma] and asbestos exposure and by 1953, the issue was fairly well resolved.’’


Studies in 1930’s by Gardner never publicized yet 1978 paper by Enterline published in 1991 still showed cancer caused by asbestos exposure well known by 1953. 


Garrard served as lead counsel on the defense side of complex mass tort and product liability litigation. From 1982 to 1999, he served as national trial counsel for Pittsburgh Corning Corporation, a manufacturer of asbestos-containing products, and he represented a number of other corporate defendants in asbestos litigation. He served as lead counsel in complex product liability jury trials in State and Federal courts throughout the United States, including several consolidated multi-plaintiff trials against numerous defendants. Henry was lead and coordinating counsel for Pittsburgh Corning in two mass consolidation trials tried before the Honorable Andrew McQueen in Kanawha County Circuit Court, Charleston, West Virginia, both of which included more than 1,000 cases. He acted as lead defense counsel for one of several defendants in the Cimino v. Raymark Industries, Inc. trial before the Honorable Robert Parker of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, which at the time was the largest joint consolidation/class action trial to be tried in Federal Court. 151 F.3d 297 (5th Cir. 1998). More importantly, as lead counsel for Pittsburgh Corning Corporation, he worked extensively with lawyers from across the country towards resolution of cases, and during his time as counsel for Pittsburgh Corning he resolved thousands of cases.”

“Henry G. Garrard III and other members of Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley involved in representing Pittsburgh Corning knew False Evidence was placed into the record that denied and/or suppressed the asbestos-cancer link, known by industry and their associations as far back as 1933. During the trial period when Garrard and Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley represented Pittsburgh Corning, 448 members of the class died waiting for their cases to be heard. See Cimino v. Raymark Industries Inc., 739 F. Supp. 328 (E.D. 1990). Much worse is, hundreds of thousands have died from asbestos linked lung cancer and other asbestos caused diseases over the last 80 years.

DOCTOR WHORES, CORPORATE & ATTORNEY PIMPS, THE BOOK "CRYSTAL MESH" by JENNIFER BANMILLER, of WINGTIP COMMUNICATIONS, INC & HIVE80.COM & PERISCOPE GROUP and ALICIA MUNDY, EX-WALL STREET JOURNAL REPORTER

DOCTOR WHORES, 
CORPORATE PIMPS,
THE BOOK “CRYSTAL MESH”,
JENNIFER BANMILLER 
& ALICIA MUNDY

Doctors are paid whores pimped out by mesh companies (and lawyers). Doctor whores assault and brutalize women forcing a deadly weapon, surgical mesh, into their vaginas. They are not street dealers selling recreational drugs. Women are being legally raped. Women pay their own money to doctors and hospitals and insurance companies to be tortured by synthetic surgical mesh, cutting through their internal organs in the most sensitive parts of their bodies, their reproductive organs.

Just to set the record straight. Doctors are the whores. Corporations (and Lawyers) are the pimps. Women are the johns. Except these Doctor Whores commit vicious crimes by forcing dangerous objects into the vaginas of women, Trocars and Pelvic Mesh.

Genital mutilation is a crime against humanity. Synthetic Surgical Mesh is worse. The health and legal systems are corrupt beyond belief.

Nothing and no one stops this medical disaster, this debacle. It continues unabated because PLAINTIFF’S ATTORNEYS, yes, PLAINTIFFS ATTORNEYS and DEFENSE ATTORNEYS protect MAJOR CORPORATIONS who intentionally and knowingly perpetuate the harm, aided and abetted by JANE AKRE.

MY OPINION OF “CRYSTAL MESH”, THE BOOK.

IT IS A LIE.

ALL EXISTING COPIES SHOULD BE BURNED BECAUSE JENNIFER BANMILLER AND ALICIA MUNDY HAVE GROSSLY MISCHARACTERIZED WOMEN and the FACTUAL HISTORY OF MESH.

Jennifer Banmiller and Alicia Mundy portray women as “Less Than” throughout the book.

1.      “Women are not capable of filling out adverse event reports at the FDA.”
Not true. Thousands and thousands of women have filed adverse event reports at the FDA for complications of synthetic surgical mesh for bladder suspension and pelvic organ prolapse repair.

2.      “Women are incapable of psychologically dealing with the serious physical injuries caused by surgically implanted mesh.” Not true.

3.      “There will never be bladder slings for men, because men would never allow it to happen to them.” Totally sexist and not true. Synthetic Surgical mesh bladder slings for men have been on the market since the early 2000’s.

4.      “Women in America did not start a movement against synthetic surgical mesh.” Not true.

5.      Women who are the original World Mesh Leaders are not even mentioned in the book.
a)      Lana Keeton, Truth in Medicine, United States, 2007
b)      Lorraine Evans, TVT-Meshed-Up-Mesh.org, United Kingdom, 2008
c)      Gayle Graham, South Africa, 2008
d)     Maria Smit & Dora de Wilde, MeshedUp.eu, Holland
e)      Carmel Berry & Charlotte Korte, MeshDownUnder.co.nz, New Zealand
f)       Elaine Holmes & Olive McIlroy, Scottish Mesh Survivors, Scotland
g)      Joanne Boon, Australia

6.      Kath Samson, covered in the book, started her group by stealing from Lorraine Evans. Kath Samson has harassed and denigrated many mesh injured women and she is reviled by many mesh injured women worldwide.

7.      Jane Akre, is a thief and a fraud and a disservice to all mesh injured women and men. She operates an illegal attorney referral service and writes stories that protect attorneys, not the women. A whore? My opinion, yes she is. Yet Alicia Mundy and Jennifer Banmiller thank Jane Akre at the beginning and at the end of the book.

Personally I am furious. This book denies my existence. This book eviscerates my work. This book is a disservice to me and to all mesh injured women worldwide fighting to stop the harm.

To my face Alicia Mundy told me on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 that my Motion to Recuse Judge Joseph R. Goodwin was not a strong argument. When did she become a legal expert? The fact I even filed the motion is a gigantic win against the corruption in the Multidistrict Litigations in West Virginia that has used and abused over 100,000 mesh injured women. Who else had the strength to go against this corrupt judge? Anyone else? No.

And Alicia Mundy told me on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 my testimony before the FDA Obgyn Panel meeting on February 12, 2019 was deficient because I mentioned the 14-15 mesh removal surgeries and the flesh eating bacteria I got from a Gynecare TVT bladder sling.

The FDA held the meeting on February 12, 2019 because of pressure I put on them by submitting 87,000 adverse event reports on September 5, 2018. 87,000 adverse event reports not submitted because their attorneys prohibited them from submitting them.

Alicia Mundy denigrated Barbara Lynn Melling’s testimony at the same meeting. Every single person has the right to stand up publicly before the FDA and tell their story. In any way they see fit. This is America.

Alicia Mundy is biased and prejudiced against mesh injured women. By default, Jennifer Banmiller is biased and prejudiced against mesh injured women as Banmiller PAID Mundy to write the book, admits it is a lie and has done nothing to remedy the NON FACTUAL BOOK “CRYSTAL MESH”.

Personally I AM A VICTOR, no matter what Alicia Mundy OR Jennifer Banmiller says or thinks, and I have told them both repeatedly NOT to characterize me as a victim. I AM NOT a victim. I own my destiny which GOD has given me and Jennifer Banmiller and Alicia Mundy do not define who I am.

AMBULANCE CHASER BRIGADE... JANE AKRE, BEGGS, LANDERS AND ALL THE USUAL SUSPECTS! WHAT A SAD COMMENTARY ON THE ONGOING UNEQUAL JUSTICE FOR WOMEN IN THE FEDERAL COURT SYSTEM IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA...

The lawsuit against Clark, Love, Hutson and Lee Murphy in U.S. District Court in the Southern District of Texas is a sad comment on the power of women to be properly represented by any law firm. 

Dear old Clayton A. Clark just pulled out his "let me screw you" playbook and accused Beggs, Landers of wrongdoing, which is not true. 

And the idiot Jane Akre has this ad posted as she dredges for any possible new plaintiff for Beggs, Landers so her lifestyle goes on unhindered by the fact that Jane Akre is A THIEF. Good luck with this crowd of AMBULANCE CHASERS.

FRAUD IN THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF WEST VIRGINIA
UNDETERRED BY THE FEDERAL APPEALS COURT
OR
THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
BUT MOST LIKELY WILL NOT BE IGNORED BY THE
INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE

Form 211 (July 2018) Department of the Treasury –

Date Claim received

Section A – Information About the Person or Business You Are Reporting

JUDGE JOSEPH R. GOODWIN and retired JUDGE DANIEL J. STACK STAND
SHOULDER TO SHOULDER WITH THE LEGAL CARTEL

The Public Corruption of the following attorneys and Judge Joseph R. Goodwin has

doomed thousands of Pelvic Mesh injured women to Unequal Justice under the Law sentencing

them to further brutalization by forced Pelvic Mesh removal in order to be compensated for

severe physical injuries from implantation of a “medical device”, the deadly petroleum waste

byproduct, polypropylene synthetic surgical mesh.

The nine members of the FCC are:
Chairperson Henry G. Garrard III (Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley)
Renee Baggett (Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis & Overholtz)
Riley L. Burnett, Jr. (Burnett Law Firm)
Thomas P. Cartmell (Wagstaff & Cartmell)
Clayton A. Clark (Clark, Love & Hutson)
Yvonne M. Flaherty (Lockridge, Grindal, Nauen)
Carl N. Frankovitch (Frankovitch, Anetakis, Colantonio & Simon)
William H. McKee, Jr.
Joseph F. Rice (Motley Rice)
and
Daniel J. Stack (Retired Circuit Judge, External Review Specialist)
Judge Joseph R. Goodwin, U.S. District Court, Southern Dist. West Virginia

     Civil litigation has become a criminal enterprise in the “Theft by Allocation of Common Benefit

Funds” conspiracy that includes, but is not limited to, Judge Goodwin, Judge Stack, William H.

McKee, Jr.(Judge Goodwin’s decades long friend), Henry Garrard III, Clayton Clark, Renee Baggett,

Riley Burnett, Tom Cartmell, Yvonne Flaherty, Carl Frankovitch and Joe Rice.

           
            April 11, 2020 marks a very sad anniversary. Exactly two years ago, 13,000 “Non-Revision

Plaintiffs”, code for #MESH Injured Women with implanted Ethicon/Johnson & Johnson Pelvic

Surgical Mesh who had not had it surgically removed, were unlawfully forced to end their lawsuits

unless and until
A SURGEON HAD CUT THEM OPEN TO REMOVE THE MESH.

With the stroke of his pen on PRETRIAL ORDER 293 on APRIL 11, 2018 by JUDGE JOSEPH

R. GOODWIN, 13,000 “Non-Revision Plaintiffs” were hung out to dry financially. These women

will likely never see a penny.  Collusion and conspiracy of the Plaintiff’s Attorney Steering

Committee with Ethicon/Johnson & Johnson and their own Defense Attorneys and JUDGE

JOSEPH R. GOODWIN, illegally forced the 13,000 “Non-Revision Plaintiffs” to have medical

treatment as a prerequisite to be paid from the PELVIC MESH SETTLEMENT FUNDS of Ethicon /

Johnson & Johnson MDL 02327 violating their 4th Amendment Rights NOT TO HAVE 

MEDICAL TREATMENT.

The FINANCIAL COSTS of pelvic surgical mesh implantation is relatively low compared to the

exorbitant costs of pelvic surgical mesh removal, for the mesh injured patient most likely already in

FINANCIAL RUIN.

So now with the advent of the Corona Virus, Covid19, is FINANCIAL RUIN on the horizon for

the LEGAL CARTEL?  Could the LEGAL CARTEL’S FATE be just like Bernie Madoff when the

financial crisis hit in 2008 and he was sucked down the drain along with it. Madoff’s Ponzi scheme

began to unravel in the fall of 2008, when the general market downturn accelerated.

IS CORONA VIRUS “BERNIE MADOFF’S FATE” TO THE LEGAL CARTEL?

Back room deals for Plaintiff’s Attorneys need a pipeline of new plaintiffs through new

Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) and/or Class Actions perpetually to keep the funds coming to pay for

the next great MDL/Class Action. Not going to be easy to maintain when the Federal Court System

is shut down for Corona Virus.  

Instead of meeting in those back rooms when they travel to Robert C. Byrd U.S. Courthouse in

Charleston, WV, Plaintiff’s Attorneys are now sitting at their desks staring at their computer monitors

just like the #MESH Injured Men & Women they have thrown under the bus.

Financial ruin for some plaintiff and defense attorney firms? Very likely. Cause Judge Goodwin

can not “fix” the Corona Virus with a stroke of his pen. Below quoted cuts to Partner pay are just the

beginning. How many more are to come? Sitting in that stunningly beautiful legal firm office, the rent

goes on but certainly not all the billions of dollars of settlement money typically in the pipeline. 



BREAKING: Cadwalader Cuts Pay Across The Firm To Weather Pandemic By Aebra Coe Law360 (March 31, 2020, 11:42 AM EDT) - Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft LLP’s leadership announced Tuesday that the law firm is pausing partner compensation distributions and reducing associate and senior administrative staff pay by 25% in response to the economic uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a firmwide letter to staff obtained by Law360, Cadwalader managing partner Pat Quinn explained that the law firm is reducing pay across the firm in an effort to proactively address the potential economic impacts the pandemic will have so that it can avoid layoffs down the road
Reed Smith Slows Partner Pay Over COVID-19 Concerns By Aebra Coe  Law360 (March 30, 2020, 5:23 PM EDT) -- Reed Smith LLP has slowed partner cash distributions as it takes a "fiscally conservative" approach to managing the potential economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, a firm spokesperson said on Monday.

While some law firms in the United States have cut staff in response to the crisis, a spokesperson for Reed Smith reported that it is looking to its partners to help weather the precarious economic situation the world now faces as businesses close to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
MY PERSONAL OPINION –
THE MASSIVE PELVIC MESH MDL’S IN WEST VIRGINIA
ARE and HAVE BEEN 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.      Gaslighting is 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.” Sound familiar?
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 placed 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 judges and in attorneys who violate their positions and/or their fiduciary duty to prey on innocent injured Plaintiff Clients.
