PHILADELPHIA — An engaged couple's lawsuit against Merck & Co. Inc. and Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp. alleges failure to warn, negligent misrepresentation and product liability.
Jerome Dotter and Sheryl Greene-Payne filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against the defendants, alleging that they failed to disclose to consumers the potential harmful effect of receiving Zostavax vaccine.
