Implant Suit

Wyly Wade is suing Cochlear Limited in US court because the Australian company's implants failed his daughter. Cochlear recalled the Nucleus CI500 implant just one month after both of his daughter's implants quit working and had to be surgically removed, apparently because of a moisture problem in the device. Wade wants class action status for his complaint, which says the failure rate of the devices is 2.4%.
