A Rochester area woman’s court complaint has been selected to be heard as one of two bellwether cases that will help decide the outcome of several thousand suits targeting DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. and Johnson & Johnson for selling allegedly defective hip implants.
Owner of the Good Sign Co., Ann McCracken is one of 7,000 U.S. hip-replacement patients who have sued the companies over DePuy’s ASR XL Acetabular System.
