    This is one of many links re: results of pharma driving a good thing into the ground and essentially 'eating its young.' Involving reps to select attendees, venues, attend and comment, promote etc had a drying effect on the peer meetings business. IMO of course.

    I agree with you on the reps with the attendees, venues, etc. which has ruined the business but it is now the only way that a rep can see a doctor. However, the guy in this link (David Franklin) is all about the money. He was with P-D for a grand total of 4 1/2 months back in 1996 and then waited 6 years to file this. He is simply trying to secure some money as a "whistleblower."

    There's a big lag time with these cases. Sometimes they're hidden even from the defendants for like four years while the govt investigates, about 6 years after "filing" is pretty routine. Franklin got the ball rolling in 1996 according to an article in a mag for lawyers http://greenellp.com/news/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Trial_Sept10_Spotlight.pdf
