Date:4/29/2010

Doctor is one of few physicians to blow whistle on pharma industry

WASHINGTON, April 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- One of the two whistleblower lawsuits that is being settled as part of Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals Inc.'s and Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceutical LLC's $81 million settlement announced today was filed by Dr. Gary R. Spivack, a psychiatrist from northern Virginia.

Below are statements from:

  • Dr. Spivack, who is one of the few doctors to blow the whistle on the pharma industry.
  • Erika A. Kelton, a Washington, DC, attorney with Phillips & Cohen LLP, which represents the whistleblower. Ms. Kelton and her law firm also represented the whistleblower in a qui tam lawsuit that exposed Pfizer's illegal marketing of the painkiller Bextra for "off-label" uses that endangered patients' lives and health. Pfizer last year paid a record-setting $1.8 billion to settle that case and a related criminal charge as part of a global settlement totaling $2.3 billion.
