The first federal trial over DePuy Orthopaedics Inc.’s metal-on-metal hip replacement device, which is the subject of about 10,000 lawsuits across the country, is scheduled to begin on September 9 in Cleveland.

The case, brought by a woman in Rochester, N.Y., who claims to have a dislocated hip and was forced to undergo surgery to remove her ASR XL hip implant, will be the first bellwether proceeding to face jurors of nearly 8,000 cases coordinated in multidistrict litigation before U.S. District Judge David Katz. Prospective jurors are expected to be brought in on Tuesday.
