6.5 Million Jury Verdict in First Actos Trial

1 comment

A California state court jury has reached a verdict for the plaintiff in the first Actos trial in the country. The verdict comes after almost two months of trial, and jury deliberations that lasted more than a week. The jury ruled Takeda failed to warn plaintiff, Jack Cooper, of the risks of bladder cancer. Cooper and his wife were awarded 6.5 million dollars in damages.

Cooper was granted an expedited trial date under California state procedural rules. Cooper’s attorney, Michael Miller, argued that Takeda downplayed risks of bladder cancer to protect profits. There are more than 3,000 cases filed nationwide that contain similar allegations.

    I’ve tried a couple of cases with Mike Miller, and have no doubt that he did a fantastic job representing the Coopers.
