Douglas J. Moore, of Irwin Fritchie Urquhart & Moore LLC, Hildy Sastre, and Jon Strongman, both of Shook, Hardy & Bacon L.L.P., received a defense verdict on behalf of Sanofi Aventis US LLC in the second bellwether trial held in the In Re Taxotere Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2740. At the culmination of a nearly two-week jury trial held in the Eastern District of Louisiana, a defense verdict was rendered on the first question on the verdict form, with the jury finding that Sanofi did not fail to adequately warn of the risk of permanent chemotherapy-induced alopecia associated with the use of Taxotere, a life-saving chemotherapy medication.
