{Collateral Damage} Merck Settles for $100million in NuvaRing Injury Case

Last night when I got home from work I pulled a large white envelope out of my mailbox. I didn’t give it much thought, I let the muppet like dog out to pee, and when we came in I tossed the envelope on the table. I went about my routine, bracelet in the clam shell, … Continue reading
