Catching Up With Merck

The New Jersey Law Journal has an article discussing the status of the various Vioxx-related securities litigations pending against Merck & Co. The company entered into a $4.8 billion product liability settlement last week, which may make the plaintiffs' cases easier to win. The securities class action, however, was dismissed earlier this year on statute of limitations grounds. The dismissal is being appealed to the Third Circuit. (The 10b-5 Daily has previously posted about the lead plaintiff dispute in the case.)
