Weinstein Unseals Zyprexa Documents

The NYT piece is here; the opinion (long! PDF!) is here.  The vast bulk of the opinion relates to certification of a class for institutional payors and denial of a class for individual payors; only at the end are the documents noted.  (The documents, of course, have been readily available online after they were released in violation of Judge Weinstein's protective order by David Egilman.)

My piece in the Review of Litigation relating to document leaks in the internet era, which includes feedback from various players in the Zyprexa litigation including Judge Weinstein himself, is available, and I have a boatload of reprints.  Feel free to holler for one.

I am interested in any case law on obtaining total e-discovery of the adverse lawyer, for improper motive, and of the judge, for bias. I think it should become legal malpractice by one's lawyer to fail to do so.
