On June 11, 2015, a Philadelphia jury found that Pfizer was not negligent in failing to warn of the risks of taking their product Zoloft while pregnant. The plaintiff, an Illinois woman, claimed that taking Zoloft during her pregnancy was the cause of her child’s congenital heart defect. This is the second verdict in two cases in favor of Pfizer for claims that taking Zoloft during pregnancy was the cause of injuries to the child. These verdicts do not favor the over 600 plaintiffs who are currently involved in multidistrict litigation in federal court for similar claims against Pfizer.
