Vioxx Trial - California State Court (Grossberg)

Jury selection began L.A. in a lawsuit by a Southern California man who claims he suffered a heart attack after taking the painkiller Vioxx. The Plaintiff is Stewart Grossberg. Grossberg claims he took Vioxx for more than two years before he had a heart attack at 66.

His case is the first to go to trial in California and one of some two-thousand filed in the state and consolidated in Los Angeles Superior Court by Judge Victoria Chaney.
