Wow - now here is a little rethinking payback...
- Beyond Bullet Points on Trial: according to the Fortune magazine article, "Stark Choices at the First Vioxx Trial", two lawyers used PowerPoint in "starkly" different ways in a heavily-publicized trial that began Thursday in Texas.

- Jury Finds Merck Liable - $253 Million Judgment: A Texas jury found pharmaceutical giant Merck & Co. liable Friday for the death of a man who took the once-popular painkiller Vioxx, awarding his widow $253.4 million in damages in the first of thousands of lawsuits pending across the country.
I bet Cliff Atkinson starts doing a lot more consulting on jury trial prep. I know some patent prosecutors/lecturers who could use some help as well. Explaining concepts isn't confined to litigators.
