I last reported on the Hormone Therapy litigation in September of this year. At that time we were awaiting jury verdicts in two cases: one case we were trying along with the Littlepage Booth firm, was in front of the MDL Judge in Little Rock, Ark. – Welch v. Wyeth. Unfortunately, we lost the Welch trial, but then won a $5.1 million verdict in a case we were trying in a Utah Federal Court – Okuda v. Wyeth. The Welch verdict is currently being appealed and the Okuda verdict is going through post-trial motions. As I write this, our firm is trying another case in Little Rock – Lewis v. Wyeth – and hope to have a verdict before Christmas. Unfortunately, our Philadelphia trials, which were set for January, have been postponed to start in August. But we have trials in Little Rock in February and April, and one in an Oxford, Miss., federal court in March.
We continue to be excited that after all these years we are finally getting a number of trials set. We have made this litigation a top priority for the firm. Thousands of women and their families were badly hurt by what happened to them. The corporations responsible for the hurt and misery they caused must be held accountable.
