Judgment In Favor Of Merck For Vioxx Drug

Earlier in August a Texas jury found Merck liable for the death of Robert C. Ernst, who died in May 2001 after taking Vioxx, a pain killer made by the company. After two days of deliberations, the jury said that Carol Ernst, Mr. Ernst’s widow, should be awarded $ 253.5 million which was later cut to $26 million.

Frederic Ruffy, analyst at Optionetics said, "This is favorable for Merck and has also pushed up the pharmaceutical sector in general and although this is a big victory, they still face a lot of pending lawsuits."
