the Honorable Judge Nicholas Garaufis
Multi-District Litigation (MDL) No. 3044
PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., Feb. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- On January 26, 2023, the Exactech Plaintiffs Steering Committee ("PSC") filed the Master Complaint in the multi-district litigation, In Re: Exactech Polyethylene Orthopedic Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 3044, in the Eastern District of New York.
In the Master Complaint, Plaintiffs allege various causes of action against Exactech, Inc., the manufacturer of over 200,000 recalled hip, knee and ankle prosthetics. Additionally, the Master Complaint alleges various causes of action against TPG, Inc. and affiliated companies. According to the Master Complaint, "TPG is a leading alternative asset manager that works with companies in many sectors, including the medical sector" and "TPG paid over $737 million to merge with and acquire Exactech" and that the "TPG Defendants used Exactech as an agent, alter ego, and mere instrumentality such that TPG Defendants maintained control over Exactech."
Jason Goldstein, a Senior Mass Torts attorney with Parker Waichman, is a member of the Exactech PSC. Mr. Goldstein stated "The filing of the Master Complaint is an important step in this MDL. The allegations contained in the Master Complaint bring to the public light the significance of Exactech and TPG's alleged wrongdoing."
