A judge declared a mistrial Thursday in a two-plaintiff consolidated Vioxx case in Los Angeles. The jury was unable to reach a decision on whether the plaintiffs' physicians would have recognized the drug's risks. The plaintiffs were Lawrence Appell of Arizona and Rudolph Arrigale of California. This report from Gabriel Haboudi of Jurist -- Jury deadlock in California Vioxx case leads to mistrial -- contains a brief summary plus links to further information.
