First Trial Date Set for Exactech Hip Knee and Ankle Cases Consolidated in Florida Court
Justice is moving swiftly for plaintiffs in the Exactech hip, knee, and ankle litigation. The first trial date is set for November 6th, a little more than a year from now. Mctlaw attorney, Ilyas Sayeg won arguments to move all FL Exactech lawsuits into a consolidated master case in the Eighth Judicial Circuit of Florida (Case No. 01-2022-CA-2670). Further, the Alachua Circuit Court agrees to consolidate all Exactech lawsuits under the management of Hon. Donna Keim.
The Order of Consolidation includes 54 cases that are currently pending and provides the opportunity to consolidate all Exactech cases filed in the Eighth Judicial Circuit of Florida in the future. Attorney Sayeg advocated for the consolidation of these cases in order to promote efficiency, consistency, and judicial economy. Consolidating the cases helps them get heard as quickly as possible, providing the most efficient resolution for plaintiffs.
The Court in Alachua County, Florida is the ideal venue to file these cases. Exactech is a Gainesville, FL-based company. Further, Hon. Donna Keim has prioritized moving this docket along quickly. Her strategies for expediency include monthly Case Management Conferences and hearings regarding the Exactech Master Case. In addition to this, she set the first trial for a little over one year from now, further showing her commitment to hearing this group of cases as quickly and expeditiously as possible.
