From AP, Newsday, and other sources:
Accusing the plaintiff in the case of lying, drug company Merck & Co. asked a judge to dismiss the first scheduled trial over Vioxx.
In a court filing Merck said Cheryl Rogers, an Alabama woman who filed a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of her husband, lied in her deposition because the Vioxx pills she claims her husband took didn't leave the company until six months after he died. The trial is slated to begin on May 23.
The court should dismiss plaintiff's complaint with prejudice because plaintiff has perpetrated a fraud on both Merck and the court Merck set forth in its Motion.
