Merck’s Lawyers Apparently Haven’t Learned Their Lessons

According to a story today at, Merck’s lawyers seem to be taking the same aggressive, abrasive, and unprepared approach in the New Jersey trial that caused them to lose the Texas Vioxx trial. An excerpt:

Merck & Co. attorneys unsuccessfully tried to block a plaintiff’s medical expert from testifying Friday in the second product liability suit over Merck’s withdrawn painkiller Vioxx.

The renowned cardiologist, Dr. Benedict Lucchesi, was part of the team that originally developed the pacemaker. Lucchesi, a professor of pharmacology at the University of Michigan Medical School, is expected to testify on the impact of medications on the heart.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
