GSK's top management was aware of illegal marketing schemes involving the drugs, according to filed court documents.  When the two Kenney & McCafferty-represented whistleblowers reported their concerns about illegal marketing practices they were witnessing in the field, GSK's top compliance executive, an attorney who now holds a s
