Jury Awards Family of TX Man Who Took Vioxx for One Month

The family of a 71-year-old man was awarded $32 million after a jury determined the painkiller Vioxx caused him to suffer from a heart attack. The man had a 20-year history of heart disease and suffered the fatal heart attack within a month of taking the drug. A state law would cap the family's recovery at $7.75 million.
