As far as the law is concerned, those individuals whose pacemakers fail are the lucky ones.
That's the lede to a story giving an overview of the Medtronic and Guidant pacemaker and defibrillator litigations. The West Virginia attorney around whom the story is centered has (with a group of plaintiffs' attorneys) around 200 cases each against Medtronic and Guidant in MDLs in Minnesota. His estimate is that the MDLs may end up with as many as 5,000 cases.
