ANSWER:

Attorney Henke was also nominated by the LATLA Board for the most highly coveted "Trial Lawyer of the Year" Award, specifically for his prosecution of a case involving a physician's use of an FDA unapproved AIDS drug, foreshortening the lives of his 5 clients.

Attorney Henke also testified before Congress at the invitation of the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee of the United States House of Representatives on his California legal work in several cases, including his use of claims for punitive damages to set examples of defendants who consciously disregarded the safety, health and rights of several AIDS patients who were given FDA unapproved AIDS drugs.

QUESTION: Can the California pharmaceutical product liability lawyer verify that he is an effective legal advocate, by citation to important published appellate victories he has achieved, including in significant pharmaceutical product liability cases?

The California pharmaceutical product liability lawyers appellate success matters because it is a good measure of the pharmaceutical product liability attorneys vitally important general ability to argue and persuade on legal issues. It is an ability that is not just essential on pharmaceutical product liability appeals. It is an ability essential to the California pharmaceutical product liability attorneys effectiveness in meeting all the big and small challenges presented at every stage of pharmaceutical product liability litigation, e.g., in pretrial motions, which can seriously affect settlement posture as well as the respective parties' important advantages or disadvantages at the pharmaceutical product liability trial. Your California pharmaceutical product liability attorneys willingness to ask the appellate court to immediately reverse a bad pretrial decision that guts the pharmaceutical product liability case may also be essential to achieve the quickest and best result. Your California pharmaceutical product liability lawyers legal advocacy is also a talent essential during a pharmaceutical product liability trial, as the pharmaceutical product liability trial lawyers must be able to effectively argue legal issues, e.g., the defendant's admission fault or the inadmissibility of the plaintiff's prejudicial medical or character evidence, and perhaps most critically for the pharmaceutical product liability case, the permissibility of pharmaceutical product liability expert opinion testimony. Then, if you "hit big" at trial, the defendant is almost certain to appeal your favorable pharmaceutical product liability verdict, and you may then require superior legal advocacy to hold on to your victory.

ANSWER:

Attorney Henke has had extraordinary published and verifiable appellate victories, both in pharmaceutical product liability cases and other cases.. As one example, in a pharmaceutical class action case, on behalf of a single aggrieved client attorney Henke obtained the reversal of a $120,000,000.00 Ohio Federal District Court approved settlement purporting to bind 1000 injured claimants joined in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of Ohio and all others injured by the pharmaceutical product nationwide. On a petition for writ of mandate to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, attorney Henke also obtained the reversal of the Ohio Federal District Court's certification of a national mandatory class action. Attorney Henke's argument, accepted by the Court of Appeals as requiring both decisions was that attorney Henke's client was denied his right to the representation of the California attorney of his choice and control over his individual California litigation. The appellate decision effected an important and enduring change in the federal law severely restricting the availability of mandatory, as opposed to voluntary class actions in mass pharmaceutical liability litigation.

As another example, when a California trial judge applied newly enacted tort reform legislation to deprive Attorney Henke's 5 AIDS patient clients of their punitive damage claims arising out of their physicians use of FDA unapproved AIDS drugs, lawyer Henke obtained a stay of the trial and filed in the California Court of Appeals an "extraordinary writ" seeking an immediate reversal of the California trial court's order. The California Court of Appeals granted the writ of mandamus, ordering the California trial judge to reverse its order and permit attorney Henke's pharmaceutical product liability clients to pursue their punitive damage claims. It also rendered an important published appellate opinion reinterpreting the repressive California tort reform legislation to deprive it of most of its negative force and effect.

The California pharmaceutical product liability lawyers recognition by Martindale Hubbell, his recognition by his peers, his local and national reputation, his pharmaceutical product liability trial successes and his appellate successes in pharmaceutical product liability cases are all matters which you should want to inquire about in selecting the right California pharmaceutical product liability lawyer for your serious injury case.

*Most Recent Product Liability Jury Verdicts and Settlements:

$2.7 million dollar jury verdict in a drug product fraud case in which attorney Henke represented 5 plaintiffs in a single consolidated 4 month trial alleging a conspiracy to defraud his clients with ineffective and dangerous AIDS drugs. Mr. Henke's experts in the case included Luc Montagnier, the discoverer of HIV and head of France's National AIDS Laboratories; Michael Gotlieb, the discoverer of AIDS and co-founder of the American Foundation for AIDS Research, Don Francis, the head of the first CDC AIDS Task force and discoverer that AIDS was a sexually transmitted disease, John Curnutte, head of the largest AIDS vaccine project in the world, Roger Detels, Chairman of the Epidemiology Department at UCLA and chief investigator on the largest AIDS epidemiology study in the United States, and a dozen others of the most highly respected AIDS scientists and physicians in the world. Mr. Henke also testified before Congress with regard to these cases, at the invitation of the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee of the United States House of Representatives.

$1.5 million dollar settlement in a pharmaceutical product liability birth injury case involving a drug which attorney Henke claimed was the probable cause of the child's birth injuries, based upon the facts that the child's mother's obstetrician provided her a sedative during early pregnancy. Mr. Henke's firm obtained possession of a list of physicians, which included the mother's obstetrician, who served as "investigators" in clinical trials involving a drug which was later determined to have been a very powerful teratogen; and the child was born with limb defects typical of the kind of birth defects which were caused by the particular teratogen. The settlement was achieved despite the fact that the medical records were unavailable 20 years after the birth and retirement of the obstetrician; and the mother did not recall the name of the sedative which was provided to her. Attorney Henke also obtained a $100,000 settlement from the physician who provided her the sedative. The applicable statutes of limitation had long passed by the time the client contacted Mr. Henke's office. Attorney Henke was able to overcome the statute of limitations, over the demurrers of both the pharmaceutical company and physician, by successfully alleging that they had intentionally concealed from the public and from the child's mother that they had distributed the drug.
