No post today, except to wish the readers of MassTortDefense a very Happy New Year!

From our humble beginnings last May, we have posted more than 200 stories on a range of interesting topics: pharmaceuticals and medical devices; toxic torts and consumer products; class actions, discovery, trials, and appeals; experts and regulations; everything mass tort from asbestos to Zyprexa.

We have had more than 12,000 readers, and the number has grown each month.  We will do our best in 2009 to bring you interesting ideas and developments relevant to the defense of mass torts and significant product liability claims.
