This week, our weekly legal news podcast Coast to Coast looks at the Vioxx trial underway in Atlantic City, N.J. Joining my cohost J. Craig Williams and I earlier today to record a discussion of this issue were:

  • Plaintiffs’ attorney Samuel L. Davis, from Davis, Saperstein & Solomon, who has been attending the trial to gather information for his own plaintiffs’ cases against Merck Pharmaceuticals.
  • Lisa Brennan, staff reporter for the New Jersey Law Journal, who has been covering the trial since it started.
  • Defense attorney Alan Klein from Duane Morris, who was MDL liaison counsel for a pharmaceutical manufacturer in the litigation over the diet drug fen-phen.
