Talking Bull, Episode Nineteen, A Real Jury Consultant Watches a Fictional One

April 20th, 2017|

Roy Futterman, Ph.D. In the nineteenth edition of his weekly column in Law360, DOAR’s real-life New York City Jury Consultant and Psychologist reviews the fictional NYC Jury Consultant/Psychologist on the television series “Bull,” focusing on what litigation is really like in the trenches.

April 4th, 2017|

On Monday, March 27, 2017, a Pennsylvania state judge declared a mistrial in the latest case over the alleged side effects of the Janssen Pharmaceuticals Inc. antipsychotic drug Risperdal.  In the midst of his testimony, the expert witness for the plaintiff ran to the aid of a juror suffering a medical emergency.  The expert, Dr. Mark Solomon, was to testify that the plaintiff’s exposure to Risperdal had caused him to develop large female-like breasts (a condition known as gynecomastia).

Expert Witness Testimony Key In $500 Million Verdict Against Facebook Subsidiary Earlier this month, a Texas federal jury determined that Oculus, a subsidiary of Facebook, and some of its executives must pay $500 million in damages to video game developer ZeniMax Media for copyright infringement, trademark infringement, and breach of a non-disclosure agreement. Oculus Chief Technology Officer John Carmack, a former employee of ZeniMax, was also found liable for conversion. The suit was premised upon ZeniMax’s claims that Oculus built its virtual reality technology (i.e., headsets) using software code and ideas stolen during Carmack’s tenure with ZeniMax. The crux of
