PLEASE SUPPORT MY WORK TO HELP YOU!
I am working in D.C. to expose the fraud and corruption at the FDA to get mesh off the market through the House Government Oversight and Reform Committee.
I am also working to get the Senate to take up HR 985, a bill that already passed the House March 2017. There is language being added for transparency in the settlements in pelvic mesh litigation and other benefits to the mesh injured. No one is protected by lawsuits. Except plaintiffs attorneys who are already extremely wealthy. No your civil rights will not be lost and there will not be an end to class actions or mass torts.
HR985 does not change substantive law. It defines the federal proceedings and how much plaintiffs will be paid, > 80% mimimun in Multidistrict Litigation < . Class Actions will be categorized so the most injured will have their day in court.
Your rights are CURRENTLY BEING VIOLATED in the Multidistrict Litigation in West Virginia.
Hard to explain my strategy. Guess it's like a salesman who keeps calling on a customer to get them to buy a product. Except I want them to take action which will lead to taking mesh off the market. J&J Boston Scientific American Medical Systems C.R. Bard all have millions and millions to pay lobbyists to go to Congress to keep their products on the market. I use my knowledge and experience from being a medical device expert and legal consultant to present irrefutable facts of the harm caused by mesh to get them to take real action to remove it from the market.
HR985 will never be signed into law as it is currently written. The Senate will pass it's version and it will go back to the House. And so on and so on like any bill going through the legislative process. With any luck, this will rock the world of the Plaintiffs Attorneys who have abused Plaintiffs long enough.
Elizabeth Burch who opposes the bill wrote a 64 page doc in 2014 "Judging Multidistrict Litigation" explaining how a handful of Attorneys "Repeat Entrenched Players" and their law firms control ALL the MDL's. I know those guys personally and they are cheating you guys just like they cheated me. I have worked within the MDL system for 7 years now and it is ugly. Just as ugly as the FDA. Just as ugly as mesh companies. The companies, the doctors, the hospitals, the FDA and EVEN YOUR OWN ATTORNEYS make billions of dollars while you suffer the consequences of the injuries from their #MESH products and never see fair compensation for horrible, horrible permanent injuries!
Always find out who is behind the articles you read against HR985 before you decide to accept it as fact. It is very complex. Look at the mission statements of the group's and their websites and their actions over a long period of time.
