Show us da money!

Consider this:
Latest media news PR "puff piece" sez that the Zyprexa compensation fund is up to $1.2 billion.Lilly's lawyers claim to have 'settled' the first wave (the so called 8,000) for $700 million.
Yesterday there are over 150 news Lilly press releases on how they are the good ole boys who will settle 18,000 MORE cases for $500 million ($27,000 per client)

DO THE MATH HERE- original 8,000 ~$700 million $87,000 per client half to lawyers?

Compare:today's news 18,000 for only $500 million equals $27,000 apiece ??

This sounds like bogus hush money to appease Lilly investors? Their attached statement sez that theses newer 18,000 cases are post 2003 black box warning and so have less merit/money.

Hello! I took zyprexa right out of the gate in 1996 I am possibly the #1 most viable and visible claimant and not only have I not been paid yet,i don't hear from them at all,something fishy here people.

Show us da money please!


Many of the longtime zyprexa users like myself who developed diabetes were given it 'off label' because it was being pushed on my doctor by Lilly drug reps.

The now notorious Zyprexa diabetes connection is elaborated at thousands of pages on line.
My own local clinic and clinics everywhere have stopped dispensing Zyprexa except as a PRN for acute cases.

Eli Lilly's zyprexa gravy train will stall soon enough.
I am Daniel Haszard 4 year zyprexa user who got diabetes from it.

Lilly made a mistake motivated by a desire for profits (greed) now it's time to face the music.Lilly occasionally comes out with theses periodic media PR's on compensation ($27,000 per person?) then nothing further happens and you wonder why victims get indignant.

Danny I don't know what to do anymore as I am at the point where I cry daily because of the neuropathy from Diabetis from taking that dreaded drug stating in 97 and the only thing I know is what I read on this forum. I cannot believe that a mere 27,000 dollars is adequate for what I go through daily. I do hate them ( Lilly )

I think the money is a lost cause, although I am STUNNED that state Medicaids and Medicare are taking their slice for illness or death caused by the drug. This is something Lilly should pay. What I am hoping for is LILLY EXECS to go to PRISON for bodily harm and murder of thousands and thousands of people. Whose job is it to bring these evil people to trial; criminal trial? Is the the state attorneys general? The federal attorneys general? Who else? The issue here is less about monetary justice, although that has been a farce. The issue is about criminal justice. When you maim or kill someone, you have a trial and if proven guilty, you go to prison.

Where is the action on this?
