FDA’s Pursuit of Punishing People

August 3, 2011

In his recent article appearing in FDLI Update, Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, P.C.’s Douglas B. Farquhar discusses the recent and highly publicized directed verdict for Lauren Stevens, the former in-house lawyer at GlaxoSmithKline, who was on trial for charges that she, basically, lied to the federal government in response to a subpoena demanding documents.  (See our previous post here.)  United States District Court Judge Roger W. Titus’ ruling, writes Mr. Farquhar, “should be a clarion call that prosecutors need to be mindful stewards of the enormous power that they have to decimate people’s lives.”
