Vioxx Critic Denies Being Courted By Plaintiff Lawyer

As reported by the Associated Press today, a prominent cardiologist and major plaintiff witness in the first federal Vioxx trial denied Thursday that he is being courted as a litigation consultant by the attorney he has hired — a Texas lawyer leading numerous Vioxx lawsuits.

Dr. Eric Topol, in an e-mail to The Associated Press, said Thursday that plaintiff lawyer Mark Lanier had not asked him about consulting, and he would never accept such an offer. That accusation had been made by attorneys representing Merck, the manufacturer of Vioxx.

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...)
