Another Accutane lawsuit in New Jersey ended on Thursday, this time with a hung jury instead of the usual: a big plaintiffs’ verdict. The jury had been out for a week; the trial lasted three weeks.
Accutane’s manufacturer Hoffmann-La Roche said in a press statement that it is “pleased that the jury concluded that [plaintiff] Tanna could not prove her case.” It said it looks forward to a retrial. I guess if you are wearing rose-colored glasses, that is how you would see it. Hoffmann-La Roche is taking a beating in these Accutane lawsuits. So maybe a tie is a huge win for them.
