Johnson & Johnson (JNJ:US) improperly destroyed files about some vaginal-mesh implants and may have to let juries weighing lawsuits over the devices hear evidence about the destruction, a court official said. J&J’s Ethicon unit, which made Gynecare Prolift and TVT Retropubic meshes, lost or destroyed thousands of documents and computer files about the development of the devices from as far back as 2007, Cheryl Eifert, a U.S. magistrate judge in Charleston, West Virginia, concluded yesterday. Suits over the devices are consolidated there for pre-trial hearings.
