Steve Faries named to Mirena PSC

Steve bio photoMatthews & Associates attorney Steve Faries has been named to the Plaintiffs Steering Committee (PSC) in the Mirena IUD drug litigation in the Federal MDL set in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. An MDL – multi district litigation – court is set up in many cases that involve large numbers of people in order to avoid duplication of efforts by both plaintiff and defense attorneys. For plaintiffs, MDL courts can save on overall expenses which must be paid out of any monies plaintiffs may recover in their cases. Rather than plaintiffs  suffering repeated costs of discovery, research, deposition of experts, trial preparation and other expenses necessary to prosecute any one case, MDL court expenses are shared across the litigation by all the cases corralled into the MDL.  (Order Number 5 [DE 207].)
