New Trial for Vioxx

12/12/2008 | Medical Malpractice

A Texas appellate court has ordered a new trial in a Vioxx case that originally rendered a $7.75 million judgment in favor of the plaintiffs. The three-judge panel of the Texas 4th Court of Appeals, earlier this year, overturned the initial verdict after finding that there was insufficient evidence Vioxx was to blame for the death of Leonel Garza. The new trial could be held as early as next summer, an attorney for the plaintiffs said.
