Your post on the Vioxx cluster-f**k is both comprehensive and accurate. However, my favorite part of the machinations is watching the opt-out trial lawyers race to a rural, plaintiff-friendly courthouse (yes, there are still a few of those left in the country) where they can be the first to go to trial and get a big plaintiff's verdict. Then, you get to see these lawyers at various seminars and ATLA meetings pound their chests and talk about how great they are, and how you should send your Vioxx case to them. That, alone, is worth the price of admission.


Personally, I think the most exciting part of the case is when the plaintiffs' lawyers beat each other up for a position on the Plaintiff Management Committee.

I concur that PMC issues would be the most fun to read about. You could be the A3G for class action lawyers.


My research indicates that Hughes Hubbard & Reed is the main defense counsel for Merck.
