Two more bellwether cases dismissed by plaintiffs

3M secured two more pivotal victories in the multidistrict litigation involving the 3M™ Bair Hugger™ warming system as plaintiffs’ attorneys dismissed another two bellwether cases.

The two dismissals now bring the number of bellwether cases dismissed by plaintiffs’ attorneys to six.

Lawyer Seth Webb of the law firm of Brown & Crouppen voluntarily dismissed David Henderson v. 3M and Julio & Maria Ramirez v. 3M on Oct. 30, 2018.

Both cases had been selected as bellwether cases – which are supposed to be representative of the pool of cases against the 3M Bair Hugger system.

Overall, more than 500 lawsuits against the Bair Hugger warming system have been resolved in 3M’s favor, including a jury verdict in the only case to go to trial.
