Trial Judge Reduces Final Judgment in DePuy ASR Hip Case to $8.26 Million

April 2, 2013

Depuy logo 7 imagesLOS ANGELES — A California Superior Court judge has issued a final judgment of $8,260,790.85 after the recent trial in a DePuy ASR hip implant case, representing a reduction of $77,345.27 in the jury’s award of compensatory damages.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge J. Stephen Czuleger said in issuing the judgment March 22 that the parties agreed that the $338,136.12 awarded for medical expenses should be reduced under Montana law to account for amounts payable by a collateral source.

The judgment left intact the jury’s award of $8 million in non-economic damages to plaintiff Loren Kransky.
