“A drug that was never meant for kids was illegally marketed to kids,” said a lawyer for the plaintiff in opening remarks for the Philadelphia trial regarding alleged Risperdal-related gynecomastia. “Johnson & Johnson knew about this side effect, did not warn about it and actually covered up evidence about it.”
“J&J’s lawyer countered today that Bentley’s breat develop was normal for a teen going through puberty and Risperdal played no role in it.”
Ahhh…….only in girls my dear, not in boys!!!!!!! Where did they get this lawyer from? did she keep a straight face while making this statement?
The CEO, who couldn’t be bothered to make it to court because he had “travel plans,” needs to go to prison, plain and simple! Until people have to go to prison at the end of these tirals nothing is going to change.
Yeah, I remember those breasts developing in my teen years… I hope we see another record-setting fine. But really, these guys need to go to jail. They are criminals, as well as being really bad liars.
