Merck Loses Two Times in One Day
Merck had two losses related to Vioxx lawsuits in the same day last week. A jury decided that Merck should pay $51 million to a retired FBI agent who says Vioxx caused his heart attack. On the same day, a judge ordered a new trial in a Vioxx case that Merck had already won.
Despite the setbacks, Merck said it will continue its strategy of fighting each of the 16,000 Vioxx lawsuits filed so far.
