Erin Brockovich of film fame and noted plaintiffs’ lawyer Tom Girardi are our guests on this week’s episode of the legal-affairs podcast Lawyer2Lawyer. Here the description of the show:
You may have heard about the Gardasil vaccine for teenage girls, but you may not have heard about the serious side effects allegedly affecting some young women. Merck, the company that manufactures the vaccine, the CDC and the FDA all say Gardasil is safe, effective and important. Join Law.com bloggers and co-hosts J. Craig Williams and Bob Ambrogi as they discuss this controversy and the possibility of litigation over Gardasil with two experts: Tom Girardi, nationally known plaintiffs’ lawyer and partner in the California firm Girardi & Keese, and Erin Brockovich (yes. the real Erin Brockovich who inspired the movie), president of Brockovich Research & Consulting. They discuss rising concerns over alleged side effects, the possibility of litigation, and efforts to educate young women about this controversial vaccine.
