A "misdemeanor criminal charge?" Isn't this charge meaningless to a corporation? Will this be Lilly's first ever "criminal" charge?

Aren't they a drug dealer? How about a little jail time for the marketing department.

It certainly explains why Lilly now treats its employees like McDonald's employees. Lilly used to be the best employer in Indiana. Now it has much of its work done overseas (for half the price and quality) and is starting to economically strangle the employees who remain.

The drugs that treat schizophrenia, like lithium, can cause weight gain. Carrie Fisher would be a good example. I think there was an article about her several years ago in the Star. She was at the state house for some mental-health day and had gained much weight. In many ways I'm sad that a company that makes a good product like Zyprexa has to go to court.

Hopefully the court will ferret out if and how much the company has lied and misrepresented their product.

I do think many drug studies are stacked to make the drugs look better. Likely it's the patient selection process to chose patients that will likely succeed with the product being tested can help products look better.

Another shameless shakedown by the ambulance chasers and their lapdogs in the Democrat controlled Congress.
Soon we won't be able to get aspirin because the drug makers won't want to be held liable for "misdemeanors" that cost $1,000,000,000.
The worst thing: "harmed" plaintiffs won't get squat. The shake down artists get all of the real dough.
Disgusting...

Mental Health Centers and professionas here in California prescribe and dispense Zyprexa as if it were candy, much of this state and government subsidized and based on the fact that anyone it even slightly identifies as being bipolar (the diagnosis du jour). Someone should check out the Sacramento Mental Health Center's over dispensing of this drug (forced on patients if they refuse) as well as the drug Seroquel - just as one specific example. The drug probably has other major side effects that have not been properly researched also.

to Alrightguy123. I knew someone who was probably properly diagnosed as bipolar (most are not) and he was prescribed Zyprexa - he incurred a phenominal weight gain in a relatively short period of time. Zyprexa also did not help him that much for the mental illness, when he was switched to a different drug, it made a big difference for the mental illness and without those specific side effects. I do not think this drug is all that great for most that even need help - it's fine if this drug IS the one that works for some individual where another, safer drug does not, but that is probably not the case for a vast majority of folks that are/were prescribed this drug.

They will continue to sell to Medicaid and Medicare. Guess where the money to pay the fine will come from?

Wow, and let's see, will any executives go to jail on a criminal charge, perhaps Lilly management should pay the $1 Billion out of their pockets.

Can you spell India/Bangalore. The IT and many other groups are either Indian or Chinese. I guess valuing differences means valuing H1B Visas and not U.S. citizenship and resident of Indiana. Wasn't it funny when Sidney Taurel was told to leave his position the week after he made the statement he was going to eliminate 5,000 jobs.
