A Japanese pharmaceutical company prevailed Thursday in a Las Vegas case involving two women who claimed the diabetes drug Actos caused them to develop bladder cancer.
Actos has been used for years to reduce blood-sugar levels in patients suffering from Type 2 diabetes, a lawyer for the drug’s manufacturer said Tuesday. It was the second and final day of closing arguments in a Las Vegas trial that began three months ago against Japanese company Takeda Pharmaceuticals.
A Nevada inmate who says he practices Satanism is accusing county jailers of violating his constitutional rights by denying him meals consistent with the strict diet of his pagan religion, including ice cream.
Members of the Nevada Supreme Court on Tuesday asked for more time before deciding on a request from the State Bar to provide legal protections for lawyers who advise clients on medical marijuana issues.
