Today, the jury will begin the second phase of the unusual trial, primarily to determine whether the second plaintiff is entitled to damages. The jury found Friday that Merck was negligent in the case of Frederick “Mike” Humeston, 61, of Boise, Idaho, who survived a heart attack in September 2001, before the stronger warning. So far, jurors have only heard evidence about Merck’s marketing of Vioxx and what it disclosed about increased risks of heart attack and stroke, which led Whitehouse Station, N.J.-based Merck to pull the blockbuster drug from the market in September 2004. Higbee agreed to the two-phase trial arrangement to try to speed up trials. She is overseeing more than half of the roughly 28,000 Vioxx lawsuits Merck faces. Merck shares closed up 6 cents on Monday at $44.25 on the New York Stock Exchange. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

TRENTON, N.J. – The judge presiding over a Vioxx personal injury trial in Atlantic City on Monday rejected a motion to give one of the two plaintiffs a second shot at winning damages from drug maker Merck & Co. The jury on Friday ruled that Merck was not negligent in the case of Brian Hermans of Waupaca, Wis., who died at age 44 after a September 2002 heart attack. That meant his family could not collect damages. However, the jury did find that Merck violated New Jersey’s consumer fraud law, so Hermans’ family could recoup three times what he paid for Vioxx prescriptions. It also allows Hermans’ family lawyer, Mark Lanier, to recoup his legal fees, which he estimates at $2 million. Late Friday, Lanier asked Superior Court Judge Carol Higbee to overturn the jury’s ruling that Merck wasn’t negligent in Hermans’ case. Lanier argued that Hermans had started taking Vioxx before April 2002, when Merck put a stronger warning about the drug’s cardiac risks in the detailed package insert, and he hadn’t seen his doctor since then. Higbee rejected the motion Monday.
A young man who told Gardai his name was Jimmy Saville probably hadn’t picked the wisest name, a Judge has said.Shaun McNamee, 22, was stopped by Gardai at Lower Main Street in Letterkenny, Co Donegal on November 22nd, 2014.He told Gardai his name was Jimmy Saville and was then arrested. Speaking at Letterkenny District Court, Judge Paul Kelly said “He called himself Jimmy Saville – probabaly not the wisest name to pick.”He fined McNamee, of Memore Drive, Omagh, €80 for being intoxicated and took another charge of engaging and insulting behaviour into account.MAN WHO TOLD GARDAI HE WAS JIMMY SAVILLE FINED €80 was last modified: February 19th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:courtdonegalGardaiJimmy Saville

Other feature films out this week include “The Wedding Date.” This romantic comedy, starring “Will & Grace’s” Debra Messing, is mostly innocuous and at best mildly charming. Vincent Gallo’s minorly scandalous “The Brown Bunny,” with its sex scene between the actor-director and Chloe Sevigny, tries to blur the line between art-house intentions and sexual provocation, but this meandering film seems more like voyeurism. And Daniel Day-Lewis’ Oscar-winning turn in “My Left Foot” is simply amazing. A special edition of the film about Irish poet Christy Brown, who had cerebral palsy, is out today with extras, including a featurette on the real Brown. “My Left Foot – Collectors Edition” (Miramax; $19.99). “The Wedding Date” (Universal; $29.98). “The Brown Bunny” (Universal; $24.98).
