Vioxx: Texas Garza Verdict Stands (For Now)

Leonel Garza's Vioxx verdict in Texas last year for $7.75 million will not be retried.

A State Court Judge did not rule on a pending Motion for New Trial filed by Merck. The Motion as a seventy five day time frame in which a Judge could rule on it. By not ruling, it has been effectively denied.

I am certain that there will be an appeal.
