Tort Law - No Cause Verdict for Merck & Co.
Merck & Co. Inc. chalked up its fifth straight trial victory in the massive Fosamax litigation with a no-cause verdict in New Jersey Superior Court. The latest win came from Atlantic County in Sessner v. Merck, ATL-L-3394-11, one of the bellwether cases in the mass tort litigation centralized there. It’s Merck’s second win in New Jersey and fifth consecutive win of the six such cases that have gone to trial. They all involve allegations that Fosamax, designed to treat and prevent osteoporosis, caused osteonecrosis of the jaw – bone death that prevents healing after dental procedures.
