In a second case that was being tried at the same time as the above case was in trial in Philadelphia, the jury found that Wyeth was at fault, but that Prempo had not caused the Plaintiff’s cancer. Since this verdict came down just as this issue was being sent to the printer, I don’t have the full story on the trial. It appears that the outcome of this case was decided, not on the conduct of the drug manufacturer, but instead, was decided on medical causation. In any event, this was the first real set-back in the HRT litigation, but it shouldn’t be that serious. In all of the cases, medical causation has to be proved and that usually isn’t a problem.
