Briggs declined comment Friday, saying he doesn’t comment on pending litigation.
He has, however, filed a motion seeking to prevent O’Rourke’s son from having to give a deposition on the grounds it would further traumatize the now 14-year-old boy who authorities have said accidently shot and killed [...]

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective drugs, has filed lawsuits alleging Bristol-Myers Squibb and Sanofi-Aventis’ Plavix caused the wrongful deaths of three patients. The suits were filed on May 30th in the Supreme Court of New York, County of New York.

One of the complaints, filed on behalf of the estate of a Rapides, Louisiana man, states that the Plaintiff-Decedent started taking Plavix in 2002 and died after a cerebral hemorrhage last June (Case No. 2017532). Another suit was filed on behalf of an Ottowa, Michigan man who began taking Plavix in July 2008 (Case No. 1043498); the Plaintiff-Decedent died in June 2009, after suffering from two gastrointestinal hemorrhages and one cerebral hemorrhage. The third suit was filed on behalf of a Bexar, Texas man and alleges that Plavix caused a gastrointestinal hemorrhage in June 2010 as well as his subsequent death that August (Case No. 1054631). All three complaints allege severe and permanent injuries, physical impairment and disfigurement, physical pain and suffering, mental pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and medical expenses related to the Plaintiff-decedent’s injuries.

The lawsuits allege that the Defendants did not properly test Plavix for safety or effectiveness, exposing users to an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, blood disorders and excessive bleeding.
