More than 300 DePuy Pinnacle hip lawsuits have been consolidated before Judge James E. Kinkeade in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas.  The DePuy Pinnacle hip lawsuits allege that the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary failed to warn consumers about design defects associated with the DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement systems.  On August 9, 2011, Judge Kinkeade held the first status conference in the DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement litigation.  DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement lawyers who represent plaintiffs throughout the United States attended the conference.  One of the first orders that Judge Kinkeade is expected to issue will be to choose a committee of plaintiffs’ DePuy Pinnacle hip lawyers to serve in leadership positions for the consolidated DePuy Pinnacle hip lawsuits.  In order to make those determinations, Judge Kinkeade asked DePuy Pinnacle hip lawyers wishing to serve on the steering committee to respond to a questionnaire highlighting their experiences with big cases.

DePuy Pinnacle Hip Lawsuits And DePuy ASR Hip Lawsuits

In addition to the DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement lawsuits pending before Judge Kinkeade, Johnson & Johnson is also defending over 2,000 DePuy ASR hip lawsuits stemming from metal on metal hip replacement devices, which were part of a nationwide DePuy ASR recall in August 2010.  Although hip replacement failure is common in patients who received both the DePuy Pinnacle and ASR hip systems, a DePuy Pinnacle hip recall has not been issued.  However, many of the plaintiffs filing DePuy Pinnacle hip replacement lawsuits allege that a DePuy Pinnacle hip recall should have been issued years ago because the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary was aware of problems associated with the DePuy Pinnacle hip systems.
