Phill Hartman was a beloved comedian and famous cast member of Saturday Night Live. In 1998, he was tragically shot and killed by his wife, Brynn. Brynn then turned the gun on herself and committed suicide after fatally shooting her husband.
Shocked by the uncharacteristic behavior of Brynn Hartman, her family blamed the antidepressant drug, Zoloft, and its manufacturer, Pfizer, for the horrible incident. Brynn’s brother would later file a wrongful death lawsuit against Pfizer.
The suit claims that the drug, Zoloft, caused Brynn to lose her sanity, leading her to commit the murder and suicide of her husband and herself. Brynn’s brother was successful in reaching an out-of-court settlement with Pfizer that was disclosed per the terms and conditions of the settlement.
