"Merck has known for a decade that its mumps vaccine is "far less effective" than it tells the government, and it falsified test results and sold millions of doses of "questionable efficacy," flooding and monopolizing the market, a primary caregiver claims in a federal antitrust class action.
     Alabama-based Chatom Primary Care sued Merck on Monday, the week after the unsealing of a False Claims Act complaint two relators filed in 2010."

It didn't take long. I hope there will be many more lawsuits regarding this. I don't see why there wouldn't be.

Unfortunately, Merck has more money than most countries, and I presume will not hesitate to squash any lawsuits by any means possible.
