Houston Law Firm Named to Steering Committee on Medtronic Litigation
Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 3, 2008 — Williams Hart, announced today that attorney Jim Doyle was appointed to the National Multi-District Litigation Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the Medtronic Sprint Fidelis Leads cases. The MDL is in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Doyle and several other Williams Hart attorneys are involved in this litigation.
Medtronic is the largest manufacturer of implantable defibrillators. Because defects in the defibrillators’ electrical leads, known as Sprint Fidelis leads, were thought to cause electric shock and even death, these leads were taken off the market. Williams Hart has signed up several hundred clients who suffered serious injury and death due to these defects.
