March 27, 2020
BALTIMORE — A Maryland federal judge has agreed to reconsider her refusal to reinstate a lawsuit targeting Smith & Nephew Inc.’s Birmingham Hip Resurfacing implant, noting that the plaintiff has submitted proof that defense counsel had been served with the authorization required as part of the plaintiff’s fact sheet (PFS).
In a March 10 order, Judge Catherine C. Blake of the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland granted the plaintiff’s motion for reconsideration and reopened the case.
William Mortensen’s plaintiff’s fact sheet (PFS) was due on April 26, 2019, pursuant to Case Management Order No. 8.
