The Lighter Side of Food & Drug Law – “I WAS CONVICTED OF VIOLATING THE FDCA”

November 1, 2007

In our second installment of the “Lighter Side” (our first post is available here) we pass along to you an article from The Birmingham News, which reported on a comical case of a “shaming penalty” the CEO of a medical device company agreed to as part of a plea agreement for marketing an unapproved device.  As you will read, if civil penalties are not reason enough to avoid violating the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, then perhaps the possibility of an alternative sanction like that agreed to by James Lee is reason enough.
