The Zyprexa Fun Will Never End

Eli Lilly has submitted a letter to Judge Weinstein regarding the upcoming hearing (scheduled for Tuesday).  This sort of catches your eye:

Lilly intends to seek the imposition of sanctions against Dr. David Egilman and James B. Gottstein, Esquire, for their willful and deliberate violation of CMO-3.  On December  28, 2006, Your Honor ordered Dr. Egilman to submit to a deposition in New York City, under  the supervision of Special Master Woodin.  This Order further required Dr. Egilman to produce all relevant documents by 10:00 a.m. on January 2, 2007.  Dr. Egilman did not do this.  We also learned that Dr. Egilman had deleted and destroyed otherwise responsive materials.  Consistent with Your Honor’s December 28 Order, Dr. Egilman provided access to his computers to allow for forensic recovery of these materials. 

Although the recovered materials have been provided to his counsel for review  and production, Dr. Egilman has still not completed his production.

Egilman's deposition will apparently begin next week.

I've heard that the Freedom Center's radio show (hosted on WXOJ-LP by Will Hall, who's one of the folks on the injunction and an acquaintance of mine) on Wednesday largely addressed this case.  I didn't hear it and it doesn't seem to be up on their podcast yet.
