Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly referred to Mike Leach as the football coach at Texas A&M. In fact, Leach is the coach at Texas Tech, Mark Lanier’s alma mater.

Mark Lanier told The Am Law Litigation Daily on Friday that he’s not expecting any miracles on Monday, when he begins the first trial to test claims that Pfizer’s anti-epilepsy drug Neurontin increases patients’ risk of suicide. He’ll be lucky, he said, to eke out a win. “I’ve got a near impossible case,” Lanier told us. “If I lose, it’s almost like a focus group educational experiment. If I win, it portends bad things for Pfizer.” [Hat tip to Bloomberg, which offers this insightful trial preview.]
