Litigation Note: Corin Wins Summary Judgment
Washington, D.C. – February 4, 2016: Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce that clients Corin Group PLC and Corin USA Limited (collectively "Corin") have prevailed in a lawsuit alleging injuries from Corin’s hip resurfacing system, the Cormet, a Class III medical device approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (Swisher v. Stryker Corporation, et al.). After full discovery, Crowell & Moring, on behalf of Corin, filed motions for summary judgment and to exclude the plaintiff’s sole liability expert, metallurgist Mr. Charles Powell. The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma excluded the relevant opinions of Mr. Powell and granted summary judgment in favor of Corin on all claims, holding that there was no evidence of the purported defect in the device nor any evidence of medical causation for the plaintiff’s alleged injuries.
Crowell & Moring served as lead counsel to Corin in this matter.
