Savior or Scoundrel? Jurors’ COVID-Era Opinions of the Pharmaceutical Industry – Part 1


How does the jury look at big pharma?

Recently, large pharmaceutical companies have become the “bad guy” in both online and public discussion for different reasons. There is the anti-vaccination movement to the rumors that the pharmaceutical industry withholds cures, etc. Whether minor or extreme, these attitudes have carried over into how jurors view pharma-related litigation. This white paper reviews how this issue is now being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the race for treatment and vaccines.
