Since the recall of Vioxx last year, Vioxx litigation has progressed slowly. There is a trial in progress right now in Atlantic City and one case was decided in favor of the plaintiff Carol Ernst in Angleton, Texas. The federal trial is expected to start in November this year in Houston.

Vioxx (sold as Ceoxx in some countries) was sold worldwide before being pulled.
