PUBLISHER OBTAINS BREAST IMPLANT REPORT

 WAYNE, Pa., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The ad hoc committee of judges appointed to decide the fate of breast implant litigation in Pennsylvania has issued its final recommendations to the state Supreme Court, calling for statewide consolidation and a three-judge panel to oversee the litigation for pre-trial purposes.
 The committee's 21-page report was published in today's issue of Mealey's Litigation Report: Breast Implants.
 Members of the ad hoc committee include appellate Judges Joseph A. Del Sole and R. Stanton Wettick Jr., and trial court judges Sandra Mazer and Moss and Silvestri Silvestri.
 While the panel recommends statewide consolidation for pre-trial purposes, new suits will continue to be filed in their original venues, and then either transferred or stayed by the coordinating judges. The committee recommends the three-judge panel act en banc. "This will permit the work to be shared and the decision-making on these very complicated matters will be improved with the input of more than one judge," the committee concluded. One jurist can be appointed coordinating judge with the other two serving as panel members, the committee said.
 This week's issue of Mealey's Litigation Report: Breast Implants also includes coverage of rulings in the breast implant federal multidistrict litigation. For a free copy of the report, call Scott Jacobs at 215-688-6566 or fax request to 215-688-7552.

Other topics covered by Mealey's include the Americans With Disabilities Act, toxic tort litigation, environmental insurance coverage, Superfund, insurance bad faith, punitive damages, asbestos personal injury actions, asbestos property actions, lead litigation, international arbitration, reinsurance, insurance insolvency, and intellectual property.
