Second MDL Vioxx Trial Begins

A retired FBI agent is up next this week in New Orleans, LA before Judge Fallon. The Plaintiff - Jerry Barnett - took the drug for for more than eighteen months. His claim of injury is a heart attack, and his counsel is Mark Robinson.

The Plaintiff began taking pain relievers after an auto accident in 1978 and switched to Vioxx in January 2000. Barnett took Vioxx for 55 months, from January 2000 to September 2004, when Vioxx was pulled from the market and had a heart attack after 31 months of use.

Stay tuned.
