Lawyer, Expert, Reporter Rebuked for Leak

Federal District Judge Jack B. Weinstein has rebuked an attorney, an expert witness, and a reporter for the New York Times for violating a protective order in a mass-tort action involving the anti-psychotic drug Zyprexa, manufactured by Eli Lilly.  According to the judge, the three "conspired to obtain and publish documents in knowing violation of a court order not to do so" and described their conduct as "illegal."  See Tom Perotta's story for the New York Law Journal.
