We can’t say much, because it’s a Dechert case, but the first Seroquel case to go to trial, Baker v.

But let’s not limit ourselves – congratulations to the entire Seroquel defense team – both the Decherts and everyone else. Here’s the Dechert Press Release, which describes everything in more detail.
Nothing takes the “mass” out of a mass tort more effectively than defense verdicts.
