BREAKING: Closing arguments in Plunkett Vioxx case

The jury is hearing closing arguments in Plunkett now. (Angela G. Brown, AP, Dec. 8; Heather Won Tesoriero, "Attorneys Give Closing Arguments
In First Federal Vioxx Trial", Wall Street Journal, Dec. 8). Judge Fallon moved the trial along at a breakneck pace of two weeks for the entire matter. Plunkett is asking for non-economic damages of as much as $10 million and $400,000 in economic damages. (An earlier report that Plunkett was not asking for economic damages was incorrect.)
