Vytorin/Zetia Marketing, Sales Practices, and Products Liability case hearing in Newark — July 18, 2008

Udating an earlier item, here — the previously-scheduled judicially-supervised teleconference has just been ordered to be handled as an “in person” hearing on the record, in open court — the court rooms open to the public, at large. That is a very good thing, for this blog, and perhaps, for Pharmalot (hint-hint), too.

Dear Counsel:

Kindly be advised that the telephone conference scheduled for Thursday, July 17, 2008 at 10:00 a.m. has been converted into an in-person conference on Friday, July 18, 2008 at 10:00 a.m. Should this change present an unavoidable conflict for counsel involved, the Court will be amenable to further rescheduling.

Well, this could be a very entertaining day in the federal District Courthouse — in Newark, New Jersey.

Maybe I’ll pop-in. We’ll see.
