New Jersey Vioxx Trial Definitely Not Going In Merck’s Favor

According to a Reuter’s report today, the judge in the ongoing New Jersey Vioxx trial has instructed the jury to disregard the entire testimony of Merck’s first witness. The judge said Merck’s defense team misled her as to the nature of the witness’s testimony.

Judge Carol Higbee repeatedly instructed one of Merck’s lawyers to “sit down and stop speaking.” Judge Higbee even threatened to have the attorney removed from the courtroom.

This latest misstep by Merck comes after five unsuccessful motions for mistrial and an unsuccessful motion for a directed verdict.

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...)
