Vioxx Verdict Stands Despite Plaintiff's Widow's Loan to Juror
A $7.75 million jury award to the estate of a man whose death was blamed on only 17 days of Vioxx use will stand after the trial judge let stand the defendant's request for a new trial. Merck, the defendant, made the request after learning that shortly before the trial, one of the jurors received a $10,000 cash loan from the plaintiff's widow. Merck will appeal the denial of the retrial motion. See The Associated Press story.
