Merck announces $80 million Vioxx settlement

for third-party payors. Merck's Q209 10Q is linked above (see pp. 20-23). The fund purports to settle 190 claims by insurers and union funds who paid for Vioxx prescriptions. These claims are pending in New Jersey Superior Court and the MDL in the Eastern District of Louisiana. Merck's share price rose $0.04 -- not much of a boost on the announcement.
