The biggest casino running in Atlantic City these days is the second Vioxx trial, Humeston v. Merck. The Star-Ledger is running a weblog with regular updates. Coverage of this trial (W$J; NYT; AP; Reuters; MarketWatch; Financial Times ($)) is lower key than in the Ernst case. Unfortunately for Merck, one of its expert witnesses won't be able to testify because he's from New Orleans. New Jersey state law permits the decision to be made by a 5-1 vote of a six-person jury; the reference to "ten people" in the press includes the four alternates.
