Tom

Thanks for the "Calendar of Events"
Considering that your group has filed about 25% of the Vioxx cases, how many of these 11 scheduled for trial are from your group?

Evan

Tom: With some exceptions, I don't want to discuss my own clients on the weblog. But I can say that I don't think my group has 25% of the total cases. Something less than that.

Coincidentally, Slate ran a story today that's an interesting sidebar to the Vioxx litigation. Here's the URL:

Evan's group has about 10% of the plaintiff groups and 2-3% of the cases; they typically file ten-plaintiff complaints. The newspapers report the number of cases, while Evan's been reporting the number of plaintiffs. I don't think Schwaller is Evan's case.

The Slate article leaves out a lot of facts and gets others wrong: from the minor (APPROVe didn't involve naproxen controls) to the major (NEJM learned about the three additional heart attacks in 2001; Merck did disclose those heart attacks to doctors in February 2001 onward).
