    Eli Lilly "Panics" About "ZyprexaKills Campaign"

    Eli Lilly Gets Second Court Order Targeting
    MindFreedom Members To Try to Cover-Up Evidence

    Secret Eli Lilly Documents on Psychiatric Drug
    Zyprexa Are Said to be Downloadable Once More
    Via a Grassroots Internet Campaign Using "Tor."

    MFI Board Member Says Eli Lilly Is "Panicking"
    Because They Have "Committed Homicide."

Secret Eli Lilly documents about fraudulent marketing of the  
psychiatric drug Zyprexa are reportedly available once more for free  

Eli Lilly has obtained a second court order, this one targeting a  
number of MindFreedom members. In an e-mail exchange today Eli Lilly  
threatened a MindFreedom member, Eric Whalen, with legal action to  
try to suppress the documents. Eric has complied.

via MFI's Update 12 here:


But according to an anonymous report, the secret "ZyprexaKills"  
documents are still available to those able to use a super- 
sophisticated Internet privacy protection system called "Tor" which  
was developed by the Electronic Freedom Foundation (EFF) to create  
distributed network "cyber-tunnels" around censorship. More  
information about installing special Tor software to access  
ZyprexaKills documents can be found via a wiki not sponsored by MFI:


For the last six last days, a grassroots campaign appears to have  
successfully made hundreds of secret documents from Eli Lilly  
available using multiple web sites to hundreds of individuals who  
have downloaded the suppressed materials. The file itself appears to  
be about 269 megs of material in the compressed download.

Attorney Jim Gottstein of PsychRights began the furor by courageously  
making suppressed Zyprexa documents available resulting in three  
recent pieces in the NY Times.

Ted Chabasinksi, a human rights activist on the MindFreedom board,  
commented that, "I'm an attorney, and I think the reason Lilly is  
panicking is that these documents literally show a conspiracy to  
commit murder. People talk about how these documents show that Lilly  
committed fraud. They do. But more importantly, if someone  
deliberately does something that they know will cause the death of  
another person, they have committed a homicide -- murder. Lying about  
the effects of Zyprexa has led to the deaths of many people."

Eli Lilly sought and obtained the first court gag order on 18  
December, that one requiring Jim Gottstein to cease and desist from  
disseminating any of the files about Eli Lilly, and Jim is complying.  
The court is also requiring Jim to save all copies of his email for  
possible examination by the courts. While Jim disputes the validity  
of the injunction against him to suppress the Eli Lilly files, he is  
asking everyone to return the documents as required by that first  
court order here:


Said Ted, "Since Lilly does business in almost all states, and since  
people died as a result of Lilliy's behavior as evidenced by these  
documents, if there were a courageous prosecutor somewhere who saw  
these documents, conceivably Lilly's executives could go to jail."

"The genie is still out of the bottle, and Eli Lilly is still paying  
their hard-hitting attorneys to try to frighten citizens into  
silence," said David Oaks, director of MindFreedom International.  
"This is reminiscent of the way the Nixon administration tried to  
keep the Pentagon Papers secret even after the materials were in the  
hands of the NY Times."
