Verdict For Defendants In Zoloft Suicide Trial

Late last Friday, after nearly four weeks of trial proceedings, an Orlando jury returned a verdict in favor of the defendants in a civil trial alleging the antidepressant Zoloft caused Gary Torrence to commit suicide.

Our friends at Legal Newsline have more details on the case available here. This was the second time the case went before a jury after an earlier mistrial last year. Pfizer, the drug's manufacturer, was no longer a party to the case when when trial proceedings began last month.

The full trial was video recorded and webcast gavel-to-gavel, which is available for viewing via Courtroom View Network.
