Random Notes: Vioxx Trial #2

Observers have opined that the counsel for Plaintiff overstepped how Mr. Humeston was portrayed, that is -- having good health and no or very little problems.

According to those who watched the trial, Humeston was teaching whitewater rafting shortly after his heart attack occurred that he claimed that was caused by Vioxx. There was a evidence of a video of Humeston in a rafting class that was taken as part of an unrelated Workers' Compensation file. Also, Mr. Humeston had obtained psychological and medical care because of the troubles he was having at work at the post office.
