Those DePuy ASR hip implant recipients who have not yet received a settlement are waiting for news from the federal court. The Ohio judge hearing the DePuy ASR cases postponed a January 30, 2015 conference due to weather conditions preventing travel from some states.
The hearing, which has yet to be rescheduled, will address how DePuy will resolve cases for ASR recipients who had a revision surgery after August 31, 2013.

Other than the date of the revision surgery, these individuals’ cases have no difference from those ASR cases that qualified under the original ASR Settlement Program. However, DePuy’s defense attorneys are doing what they can to save the company money, including delaying the payout on remaining settlements. It is unclear whether the upcoming conference will provide answers to those waiting to settle their claims.
