In June 2015, C.R. Bard won a partial summary judgment in another IVC filter lawsuit. Florida U.S. District Judge Charlene Edwards Honeywell concluded that all IVC filters increased the risk of puncture. However, she found that the plaintiffs did not offer "any admissible expert testimony" about inferior product instructions. Although Judge Honeywell ruled that the Bard could not be sued over failure to warn or negligent misrepresentation, she indicated that plaintiff Denise Ocasio could make a claim for alleged design flaws and punitive damages.

In August 2015, the U.S. Judicial Panel on MDL consolidated lawsuits against Bard to the U.S. District Court District of Arizona. More than 50 lawsuits are pending in the MDL. Many others in federal and state courts are still on the docket.

To date, plaintiffs have not been successful in winning favorable jury verdicts. However, many more cases are scheduled for the Cook Medical MDL during August 2016.
