Mistrial Declared in Federal Vioxx Trial

Earlier today, U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon declared a mistrial in the first federal Vioxx case. The judge told the jury 20 minutes into their 4th day of deliberations that they had agreed to come to a verdict in a reasonable time. The judge said that they had deliberated for a reasonable time and had come to no verdict, so he was declaring a mistrial.

The Washington Post has a full story on the mistrial that can be read by clicking here.
