In the U.S. some of the first trial dates for cases involving people who have been affected by the recalled DePuy hip implants have been set for May 6, 2013 and July, 8, 2013.

The implants included in these lawsuits are manufactured by DePuy Orthopaedics, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. The DePuy ASR XL Acetabular System, which is a socket that is used in total hip replacements and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System, which is a partial hip replacement system.

On July 25, 2012, the Hon. Judge David A. Katz, the judge overseeing the thousands of DePuy ASR lawsuits, announced that the Plaintiffs will retain their right to individual trials and monetary settlements, as opposed to a class-action lawsuit where there is one trial and a division of any money that is recovered.
