Sebok on NJ Supreme Court's Vioxx Ruling

Tony Sebok's latest FindLaw column addresses the New Jersey Supreme Court's decertification of the Vioxx class action brought on behalf of unions and health plans against Merck.  As Sebok explains, this particular suit sought economic damages under a consumer fraud statute, not personal injury damages.    Sebok examines the trend of using such "financial damages suits" as an easier means of achieving class certification.
