In re Wright Medical Technology, Inc. Conserve Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation

United States District Court, N.D. Georgia, Atlanta Division

June 22, 2018

IN RE WRIGHT MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY, INC., CONSERVE HIP IMPLANT PRODUCTS LIABILITY LITIGATION, This Document Relates To ALL Cases

          OPINION AND ORDER

          WILLIAM S. DUFFEY, JR. UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE.

         On October 5, 2017, the Court conducted a status conference at which the parties discussed the global resolution of this MDL. ([2015]). On October 10, 2017, the Court issued its order summarizing the conference and directing the parties to file a motion requesting the Court to close the MDL to new claims. ([2017]). The parties filed their motion, and on October 18, 2017, the Court issued an order granting it, finding the purposes of the MDL fulfilled, vacating the Court's Case Management Order No. 1, to the extent it permitted direct filing of new cases, through short-form complaint or otherwise, and ordering that no new cases be direct-filed in the MDL. ([2022]).

         The same day, the Court sent a suggestion to the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (the “JPML”) that: (a) included copies of the Court's October 10 and 18, 2017 orders, (b) informed the JPML that the MDL was in a final wind-up phase as a result of a global resolution addressing all cases in the MDL, and (c) requested the JPML cease transferring new actions to the MDL as tag-alongs. ([2022]; see also MDL [235]). On October 19, 2017, the JPML accepted the Court's suggestion and issued a minute order suspending the requirement that the Clerk of the JPML be notified of potential tag-along actions. (MDL [236]).

         Since October 2017, the Court and parties have worked diligently to identify the individual cases in the MDL that are not included in the Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) and thus should not remain in the MDL and those cases that are included in the MSA but should be administratively closed. The parties identified the cases listed on Exhibit A, attached to this Order, as the cases that were directly filed in this MDL that are not part of the MSA, and which should be transferred to the United States District Courts from which they were transferred to be included in the MDL. The parties identified the cases listed on Exhibit B, attached to this Order, as cases subject to the MSA and which should remain under this Court's jurisdiction until the parties file a stipulation of dismissal dismissing them (the “Exhibit B Cases”). The Exhibit B Cases are resolved, are not active cases, and can be administratively closed.

         Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the cases identified on Exhibit A, attached to this Order, be transferred out of this MDL and remanded to the United States District Courts in which they were originally filed and from which they were transferred to the Court. The Clerk of Court is DIRECTED to transfer the cases listed in Exhibit A to their respective District Courts.

         IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of Court is DIRECTED to administratively close all cases listed in Exhibit B.

         SO ORDERED.
