Another Merck Verdict

On Friday, in the sixth case to be tried to a jury against Merck in a Vioxx case, a Texas jury found Merck liable for the wrongful death of a 71-year-old man who suffered a fatal heart attack within a month after taking Vioxx.  The jury awarded damages of $32 million, including $7 million in compensatory and $25 million on punitive damages.  Merck intends to appeal the verdict in the case.  By Lynn Brezosky, AP Findlaw
