BEAUMONT – In September, mega-attorney Steve Mostyn traveled all the way to Scotland to warn of the alleged dangers of vaginal mesh.
On Jan. 6, his Houston firm, Mostyn Law, kept the work a little closer to home, filing a vaginal mesh lawsuit on behalf of an area resident in Jefferson County District Court.
Last year, Mostyn Law filed a federal racketeering lawsuit in West Virginia, accusing Boston Scientific of using counterfeit plastic resin from China in vaginal mesh implants, which treat incontinence and pelvic organ problems in women.
The firm represents thousands of vaginal mesh plaintiffs who claim injuries from the product.
Mostyn Law’s latest case was filed on behalf of Alisha Gaffney against Boston Scientific and Dr. Stephanie Cunningham, a Port Arthur physician.
Gaffney is seeking exemplary damages from the defendants, on top of damages for her past and future mental anguish, lost earnings, disfigurement, impairment and expenses.
Mostyn Law attorney Mark Sparks represents her.
Judge Kent Walston, 58th District Court, has been assigned to the case.
Case No. A-199438
