Proving once again its ability to manage a large number of complex cases, the Philadelphia Complex Litigation Department remains the most active court in the country when it comes to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) litigation. Last month a jury returned a compensatory damages award of $3.45 million for the Plaintiff and her husband against Wyeth. This case was very important because the woman continued to take HRT even after the landmark Women’s Health Initiative study was terminated prematurely because so many women were getting breast cancer.
Additionally, the jury found that $6 million in punitive damages was warranted to punish Wyeth for its egregious conduct. This was the 13th time in a row that a jury, after hearing all the evidence, has ruled for a victim of HRT and awarded over a million dollars in actual damages. And each time a jury has been asked to do so, it has awarded punitive damages against Wyeth. Zoe Littlepage and Rainey Booth, both from Houston, Texas and Sam Abloser from Philadelphia, were the lead lawyers who represented the Plaintiff in this case and they did a very good job.
