Bailey Glasser’s David Selby Named to Lead Atrium C-Qur Hernia Mesh MDL as Member of the Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee
David Selby, II, a partner in the firm’s Birmingham, Alabama office, was appointed to a leadership position in the multidistrict case, In Re: Atrium Medical Corp. C-Qur Mesh Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2753).
The judge presiding over the MDL, the Hon. Landya McCafferty of the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire appointed David Selby to the five member Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee.
The MDL consolidates federal lawsuits from all across the country against Atrium Medical Corporation. The lawsuits allege that the C-Qur Mesh manufactured by Atrium is made of polypropylene with an outer coating derived from fish oil. The lawsuits claim the fish oil coating on C-Qur mesh produces an allergic or inflammatory reaction that has caused serious injuries, including, organ perforations and bowel obstructions.
