Attorneys representing about 300 lawsuits alleging that Risperdal causes enlargement of breast tissue in men have asked a Pennsylvania judge to unseal relevant clinical studies data.  Johnson & Johnson had previously argued that there was no reason to unseal the documents as they were generated for researchers and regulators and not for the general public.

Inspired by Open Dialogue, he works as part of a team and consults with couples and families that have members identified as patients.

A former film-maker, he has undergraduate and master's degrees in psychology from Harvard University, as well as an MFT degree from the Council for Relationships in Philadelphia. He is a doctoral candidate with the Taos Institute and the Free University of Brussels. You can reach him at [email protected].
