    Merck will not settle because

    Here is an example of the kind of people who would file claims:

    Civil lawsuit dismissed in 2004 Pistons-Pacers brawl
    October 20, 2006
    DETROIT (AP) -- A federal jury dismissed a civil lawsuit Thursday by a man who claimed Indianapolis forward Jermaine O'Neal permanently injured him during the 2004 brawl between Pacers players and Pistons fans at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
    Charles Haddad, 23, alleged O'Neal's punch to his head caused him to suffer migraine headaches, memory loss, trouble sleeping, inability to socialize, and aversion to bright lights and loud noises.
    The defense presented evidence that Haddad flew to Las Vegas the day after the Nov. 19, 2004, brawl and had been a regular visitor to the gambling mecca ever since.

    • Merck will also appeal on every single one the lose..

      Just like tobacco suits, it will appeal and Merck will ultimately win at the higher level courts ........

      States will see its in their best interest to keep Merck around and so, judges will rule in Merck's favor .

    • I'm with ya there! Merck's legal strategy is sound. Settling would open them up to all the fakes looking for an easy buck -- beyond those already on the docket.

      Earlier this year I guestimated on this board that MRK would close the year at 43. It's looking as though I aimed short of the mark. Merck's clearly on the mend. Won't it be splendid to see it back in the 50s!!!
