Manufacturing Defect Claim Dismissed in Wright Hip Case; Plaintiff May Amend Negligence, Fraud Claims

SAN DIEGO — A California federal judge has dismissed a strict liability manufacturing defect claim in a Wright Medical Profemur hip action, explaining that the plaintiff failed to allege how the manufacture of his device deviated from its suitable design.
