Jury Deliberates in Pain-Killing Patch Trial

What was supposed to release a small amount of a powerful drug into his system to deaden his pain, Adam Hendelson was killed after a patch produced by pharmaceutical Johnson & Johnson leaked delivering a fatal dose. "Millions of dollars would be appropriate," attorney Jim Orr said. "Whether it's $5 million or $3 million or $10 million, that's in your hands." Miami attorney William Upshaw told the jury of six women and two men that Hendelson overdosed on the combination of drugs he was taking, not because the Duragesic patch leaked.
