A jury awarded $3.6 million earlier this year to a woman who said a Bard G2 IVC filter (a clot-trapping vein filter), manufactured by C.R. Bard Inc., broke apart in her body.

Joe Johnson was one of the attorneys on the trial team who successfully prosecuted this case.

In April of this year, Bard fought the jury’s decision and requested a new trial. On June 19, 2018, Judge David Campbell, denied Bard’s request.

“The court denied defendants’ (C.R. Bard) initial request for judgment as a matter of law during trial, and denied their earlier motion for summary judgment,” Judge Campbell said. “The court continues to conclude that there is sufficient evidence to support a finding in favor of plaintiff (source).”
