BREAKING: Challenge to Vioxx settlement withdrawn



The challenge to the Vioxx settlement made on ethical grounds (which got substantial publicity in the New York Times and blogosphere when it was filed last week) was voluntarily withdrawn in a brief filed on December 22, and will not be argued on January 7 as originally reported. The supporting papers in the motion to withdraw state that the parties are meeting on the issue and have made "great progress," but do not specify what that progress is.
