State court jurors sided with drug manufacturer Merck & Co. last week and rejected the claims of an Alabama man who blamed the painkiller Vioxx for a heart attack in 2001.
Attorneys for Gary Albright, 57, had told jurors he should receive as much as $5.75 million in his lawsuit, filed last year.
But a jury of eight women and four men rejected Albright's claims that Vioxx caused his heart attack and that the company failed to reveal potential dangers of the drug before pulling it from the market in 2004.
Deliberations took only 1 1/2 hours; it was the second time in three days that a jury came back with a quick verdict for Merck in a trial over Vioxx. "
