You have spent the past four weeks away from work serving as a juror in a case deciding whether a pharmaceutical company should be held liable for the heart attack of a woman who took its painkiller, Oxxy-1. The lengthy case has taken a toll on your professional career, and you have many unanswered questions as jury deliberations begin.
• Where does your duty lie in serving on a jury?
• Are you protected against adverse employment action by your firm for missing work to serve on a jury?
• How do you reconcile the woman’s prior heart palpitations from years ago with her recent attack? Was her heart already compromised before she began taking the painkiller Oxxy-1?
• Why didn’t the pharmaceutical company withdraw the painkiller from the market at the first sign of a problem?
