Coast to Coast Internet Radio Takes on Vioxx

In an interesting development in Vioxx news, a New Orleans judge ruled that the $50M in compensatory damages were “grossly excessive.”  The judge upheld the verdict, finding Merck liable in the case, but ordered a new trial to decide how much the manufacturer must pay a retired FBI agent who suffered a 2002 heart attack after taking the painkiller for 2˝ years.

Join me and my co-hosts and fellow blogger Bob Ambrogi as we turn to two expert attorneys representing Vioxx clients for the lowdown.  Coast to Coast welcomes Attorney Tom Girardi of the well-known firm of Girardi Keese in Los Angeles and Attorney Paul Sizemore from the national firm of Beasley Allen located in Montgomery, Alabama.  Don’t miss this latest interview.
