On January 31, 2023, the Court overseeing the Merck/Gardasil MDL held an all-day hearing on the science underlying Gardasil and the allegations in the case. This hearing was titled “Science Day”. Both sides were given several hours to present their views of the science and safety of Merck’s HPV vaccine. National Vaccine Injury Lawyer, Drew Downing, and Paul Pennock of the Morgan & Morgan firm argued on behalf of the Plaintiffs. Merck was given an opportunity to present, as well. This hearing was to help bring the Judge up to speed on the scientific and safety allegations that are the focus the Plaintiffs’ claims.
The Court will also be issuing several orders that dictate the MDL’s schedule going forward. As you all know by now, this type of litigation will take some time, but Science Day was a good start to spelling out exactly why we feel that Gardasil has injured so many young men and women.
