MAN GOT $400,000 BECAUSE OF FAULTY PENILE IMPLANT

Man with dysfunctional penile implant will take the money.

HE SAYS IT WON’T GO DOWN – SO HE SUED AND GOT $400,000

NOW HE HAS THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

PROVIDENCE — Charles “Chick” Lennon, the retired handyman who sued over a penile implant that won’t remain in the down position, is going to receive a $400,000 judgment after all, according to a state Supreme Court order issued today.

Lennon, 68, of North Providence, is expected to get a total of $950,000, with interest included, because of the Dura-II penile implant that he says has been causing him pain and embarrassment for a decade.

“I’m just glad it’s over. It’s been a pain,” Lennon said of the legal battle with the implant manufacturer, Dacomed Corp., and its insurance company.

For a while, it had appeared Lennon was not going to get a dime despite a jury’s decision to award him $750,000.

Superior Court Judge Edward C. Clifton had lowered the jury award to $400,000. And after both sides appealed, the Supreme Court had given Lennon 20 days to accept the $400,000 or to have a new trial on damages. Lennon decided to take the money.

HE FOUND A CURE FOR HIS ”STIFF’‘ JOINT > MONEY…!
