Merck Found Not Liable in Second Vioxx Trial

By Admin on November 03, 2005 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a victory for Vioxx manufacturer Merck & Co., Inc., a New Jersey jury found the company not liable for a postal carrier's non-fatal heart attack in 2001. The plaintiff had claimed that his use of Vioxx (and Merck's alleged failure to warn Vioxx users of the painkiller's safety risks) caused a blood clot to form in his leg, resulting in a heart attack. The New Jersey jury disagreed, finding no such failure to warn, and insufficient proof of any fraud or misrepresentation committed by Merck.
