Quote of the Day - Merck is satisfied with the jury verdict, ... There will be other VIOXX trials and we will vigorously defend them one by one over the coming years. - Kenneth Fraizer
Coast to Coast Internet Radio Gets Merck's Perspective
Recently a federal jury ruled in favor of Merck & Co. Inc. in a lawsuit over the painkiller Vioxx, finding there was not enough evidence to link the drug to a Kentucky man's heart attack. In this show, we speak with a key attorney on the team representing Merck in the Vioxx cases, Phillip Beck.
On past Coast to Coast shows, we have hosted the lead attorneys for the plaintiffs affected by Vioxx as guests, but this time around we get Merckís take. Join me and my fellow co-host and Law.com blogger Robert Ambrogi as we discuss Merckís perspective with Attorney Phillip Beck, partner with the firm of Bartlit Beck Herman Palenchar & Scott LLP in Chicago. Donít miss out on this highly-anticipated show.
