Pfizer Told to Pay $10 Million Over Prempro Verdict
By Jef Feeley and Phil Milford - Feb 8, 2011 6:44 PM ET
Pfizer Inc. must pay more than $10 million in damages to an Arkansas woman who blamed her cancer on the company’s Prempro menopause drug, after an appeals court reinstated a jury verdict.
A Pennsylvania appeals court yesterday overturned a judge’s ruling that Pfizer’s Wyeth unit deserved a new trial in connection with Mary Daniel’s claim that Prempro caused her breast cancer. A Philadelphia jury in 2007 awarded Daniel and her family $1.5 million in compensatory damages and $8.6 million in punitives on her claim, according to Esther Berezofsky, one of the family’s lawyers.
The appellate judges concluded no “fraud on the court took place here and a new trial should not have been granted,” according to the 55-page decision from the Superior Court of Pennsylvania.
Officials of New York-based Pfizer said they were disappointed with the decision and considering their legal options.
