The Vioxx verdict

Call me biased, but I agree with the Merck lawyers that the burden of proof was not met in Texas. The precedent is very dangerous, and the problem in such cases is that the jury does not understand the scientific details, and often will go with their emotions. I hope that future decisions are made on clear cut technical grounds. The last thing one would want to see is copycat lawsuits against other companies.
