California AG sues Johnson & Johnson over marketing for pelvic mesh

NEW YORK, May 24 (Reuters) - California’s attorney general filed a lawsuit on Tuesday accusing Johnson & Johnson of failing to warn doctors and patients about the severity and frequency of complications associated with its pelvic mesh devices.

The lawsuit is seeking monetary penalties and injunctive relief from J&J, which sold the devices to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse in women. J&J is one of several medical device makers currently facing thousands of individual lawsuits from plaintiffs who said they were injured by mesh.
