IN RE: ZIMMER NEXGEN KNEE IMPLANT PRODUCTS LIABILITY LITIGATION


The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Rebecca R. Pallmeyer

Young B. Kim

JUDICIAL PANEL on MULTIDISTRICT LITIGATION

CLERK, U.S.

(SEE ATTACHED SCHEDULE)

CONDITIONAL TRANSFER ORDER (CTO -98)

On August 8, 2011, the Panel transferred 18 civil action(s) to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois for coordinated or consolidated pretrial proceedings pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1407. See 802 F.Supp.2d 1374 (J.P.M.L. 2011). Since that time, 505 additional action(s) have been transferred to the Northern District of Illinois. With the consent of that court, all such actions have been assigned to the Honorable Rebecca R Pallmeyer.

It appears that the action(s) on this conditional transfer order involve questions of fact that are common to the actions previously transferred to the Northern District of Illinois and assigned to Judge Pallmeyer.

Pursuant to Rule 7.1 of the Rules of Procedure of the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, the action(s) on the attached schedule are transferred under 28 U.S.C. §1407 to the Northern District of Illinois for the reasons stated in the order of August 8, 2011, and, with the consent of that court, assigned to the Honorable Rebecca R Pallmeyer.

This order does not become effective until it is filed in the Office of the Clerk of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. The transmittal of this order to said Clerk shall be stayed 7 days from the entry thereof. If any party files a notice of opposition with the Clerk of the Panel within this 7-day period, the stay will be continued until further order of the Panel.
