A hearing in the courtroom of the MDL Judge supervising the federal litigation in the DePuy hip cases has been scheduled in Toledo, Ohio, next Tuesday, November 19, 2013.
A number of unsubstantiuated report s have recently appeared in the mass media regarding settlement of the DePuy/Johnson and Jonson ASR hip litigation.

The first federal lawsuit involving DePuy Orthopaedics's defective ASR hip implants has been delayed for the second time.
