Pfizer/Wyeth Gets Hit With Yet Another Punitive Damages Award

Bloomberg reports that a Philadelphia jury has awarded $6 million in punitive damages against Wyeth (which is now owned by Pfizer) for injuries allegedly caused by its hormone replacement drugs. For those of you scoring at home, this is the fifth punitive damages award against Pfizer/Wyeth/Upjohn arising out of hormone replacement drugs. Three of those have been in Philadelphia, and a fourth Philadelphia lawsuit on the same issue is already underway.
