What's being said

  • Derek Stocker (a victim of J&J‘s defective hips)

    The first trial where the victim received over $8million I thought boded ill for others claiming. It was in my humble opinion way too high. $3 to 5 mill is much more like it. The high claim I thought would result in jurors being ‘bought off‘ as the corporations had such huge amounts to pay. Awaiting the Judges verdict in the first Australian trial. I do not think that was a jury tried case!
