Anybody got any pain killers?One trial down and more yet to come.
A jury has awarded $253.4M (yes that's million) dollars against Merck & Co. (Vioxx).
Let's hope for the sake of them lawyers they took the case on a $$$ contingency basis.
Maybe that's why they're smiling so much.
It's also a good thing for Merck that they invented something called the appeal process.
Stay tuned folks 'cause this ain't over by a long shot.
