We'd like to do our own send up here but Justice Crouch in South Carolina using the word 'Detestable' before Ordering J&J to ante up $327 Million, ..... Oh Well.
Just go read Mr. Silverman's write up, and if you're too busy right now, at least download Justice Crouch's pdf/Order for later. Fascinating Stuff Indeed!
Now, ..... while we find the Good Judge's initial:
"it is acknowledged by all concerned that Risperdal is an excellent drug for the treatment of mental illnesses."
Way beyond tough to swallow, once he gets beyond That, we think you'll enjoy him too.
"this Court finds the actions of the Defendants, upon this audience, to be detestable."
"Annual Sales of Risperdal worldwide per annual reports of Johnson & Johnson, Inc.1994: $0.172 Billion1995: $0.343 Billion1996: $0.502 Billion1998: $0.588 Billion1999: $0.892 Billion2000: $1.083 Billion2001: $1.845 Billion2002: $2.146 Billion2003: $2.512 Billion2004: $3.05 Billion2005: $3.552 Billion2006: $4.180 Billion2007: $4.697 Billion2008: $1.309 Billion2009: $1.425 Billion2010: $1.50 BillionTotal for the period: $29.796 BillionTestimony at trial indicated that the profit margin for sales of Risperdal was 97% or $28.90 Billion for the period of 1994-2010"
Judy Garland's Ruby Slippers, and an idiot who drove 500 miles to see his brother, ...... On A LAWNMOWER, ...... because he was too stupid to scrape up a bus ticket.
Has a nice ring to it.
