Schenck Appears on Texas Lawyer Video Blog

Shares Perspective on Learned Intermediary Doctrine

June 20, 2012

David Schenck, a member in Dykema’s Litigation practice, appeared recently on the Texas Lawyer video blog, “Reversed and Remanded.” In this six-minute interview, Schenck discusses application of the learned intermediary doctrine, which was applied by the Texas Supreme Court in a recent verdict that overturned a claim against a major pharmaceutical manufacturer.

Schenck notes that by applying this doctrine, the court has established a new and tougher standard for plaintiffs to bring cases against manufacturers alleging fraud and failure to warn.
