I last reported on the Hormone Therapy litigation in May of this year. At that time a Connecticut federal court jury had returned a $4 million dollar compensatory award against Pfizer. The jury also ruled for punitive damages to be determined by the judge. That was the Frazier case. Since then, a different federal court jury in Connecticut has found for Pfizer in a Hormone Therapy case – that was the Moss case. As I write for this issue, our firm and the firm of Littlepage Booth are trying a case on behalf of Sondra Welch in front of the MDL judge in Little Rock, Ark. Also, our firm, at the same time is, trying a separate case on behalf of Toshiko Okuda in a Salt Lake City, Utah federal court.
We hope to see verdicts from these two courts within the next two to four weeks. Thereafter, our firm will be trying a case on behalf of Shirley Waites in my hometown of Montgomery, Ala., with that case being set to start on the 17th of this month. Thereafter, we go back to Philadelphia for our next round of trials which start on October 8 where the mass tort coordinating judge ordered us to prepare six cases for trial. One of them will start in October with the others to start on some date thereafter.
We are excited that after all these years we are finally getting a number of trial dates set.
