LAW: Quote of the Day

Jane Galt brings us this priceless quote from a juror in the Merck Vioxx trial:

Jurors who voted against Merck said much of the science sailed right over their heads. "Whenever Merck was up there, it was like wah, wah, wah," said juror John Ostrom, imitating the sounds Charlie Brown's teacher makes in the television cartoon. "We didn't know what the heck they were talking about."

Warms the heart of every litigator to hear that.

More than that, everyone HATES that teacher.

Still, it's a little odd that the guy would publicly admit that he (they) didn't know what one side's witnesses were talking about.

Is that the fault of the jurors or the attorneys presenting the case?
