Vioxx: Lining up the trials before Judge Fallon

After the Irvin case is heard in early February of 2006, the next cases involve:

New Orleans resident Ellis Diaz, whose claim is considered a medium-term use case. The trial is set for March 13, 2006.

In April, Judge Fallon will hear a Vioxx case involving long-term use, the claim of Charles Borowicz. Counsel agreed that Borowicz' case will be refiled as a federal case and heard in April in New Orleans.
