Wyeth announced that the jury in the case of Danny Crowder (Individually and as Administrator of the Estate of Edna Faye Crowder) v Wyeth in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas found in favour of Wyeth.

"We believe this unanimous verdict was supported by the evidence," says Bob Nicholas, an attorney from Reed Smith, who represented Wyeth. "While Crowder's death was tragic, the medical evidence clearly demonstrated that her condition was unrelated to the diet drugs she used over ten years ago."

The trial began on September 29, 2008 before The Honorable Gary S Glazer. The plaintiff alleged the wrongful death of Crowder caused by Primary Pulmonary Hypertension (PPH) as a result of her use of the diet drug Pondiminâ, a drug once marketed by Wyeth. The Court had earlier ruled that plaintiff could not pursue punitive damages in this case. The plaintiff was represented by the Clark Burnett law firm of Houston, Texas.
