Mistrial In Anderson County Fen-Phen Case

The Fen-Phen trial going on in Anderson County has been declared a mistrial. The plaintiff's attorney says lawyers for Wyeth, the company who makes Fen-Phen, made inflammatory, misleading comments about the evidence during opening arguments monday. Beverly Tilmon of Palestine filed the lawsuit, claiming medical problems after taking the diet drug. The judge suggested possible dates for a new trial to attorneys, but no decision has been made yet.
