Sal Liccardo ’52 reunited with Michelle Ahearn (wife of fellow Bell alumnus Dennis Ahearn ’56) at a January 23 media availability involving the recent release of Sal’s book titled Her Right to Know: One Trial Lawyer’s Search for the Truth About ‘The Pill.” The book (available on Amazon) chronicle’s how, 50 years ago, Sal and his law firm took on the pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson and its product Ortho-Novum when his client, Mrs. Ahearn, went blind at the age of 29 after having taken the medication. As noted on Sal’s website (, “This is one journey of how product liability litigation can save lives and diminish human misery. It illustrates the tremendous courage and tenacity that is required of the victims, their trial lawyers, and often the judges and juries in the search for the truth.”
