Mich. Federal Judge Dismisses CerviCore Disc Complaints as Time-Barred, Inadequately Pled

DETROIT — A Michigan federal judge has dismissed two complaints alleging injuries caused by Howmedica CerviCore Disc Devices, ruling that the claims of failure to warn, fraud, negligence, breach of contract and misrepresentation are time-barred and/or inadequately pled.
