Courtesy of Law.com: According to Amanda Bronstad in the National Law Journal, Vioxx cases on the West Coast are nearing trial. Of the 9600 suits failed against Merck nationwide, nearly 1900 were filed in California. The first of these is set to begin in Los Angeles on June 21st, but LA Superior Court Judge Victoria Chaney has not ruled out the possibility that more than one case will go to trial.
