Refik Kozic v. Merck



50-year-old Refik Kozic suffered significant atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease and high cholesterol, but blamed his heart attack on his nine weeks of Vioxx usage. A Tampa jury (the first in Florida to hear a Vioxx case) didn't buy his argument and took just two hours to find for Merck after three weeks of trial in Hillsborough County.
