    MindFreedom Battles Eli Lilly in Court Today Over Secret Zyprexa  

    Attorney Ted Chabasinski to Report on MindFreedom Internet Radio

    Grassroots Internet Campaign Continues to Defy Eli Lilly by  
Distributing Secret Files

MindFreedom is scheduled to appear by teleconference in U.S. District  
Court this morning, Wednesday, 3 January 2007 to defend the public  
right to know the contents of secret Eli Lilly documents about their  
psychiatric drug Zyprexa.

An anonymous grassroots campaign is continuing to defy Eli Lilly  
attorneys by distributing their secret records about fraudulent  
marketing and cover-up of hazards of Zyprexa. Eli Lilly has sought  
two gag orders from the courts.

A PDF of a letter MindFreedom filed with Hon. Jack Weinstein, Senior  
Judge for the US District Court Eastern District of New York is now  
online and gives a preview of MindFreedom's arguments today. In the  
letter, MindFreedom attorney Ted Chabasinksi says this to the judge  
about Eli Lilly executives:

"While the underlying case is civil, what these documents show is  
CRIMINAL behavior on the part of Lilly's executives. They have chosen  
a course of action, lying about and hiding the real effects of  
Zyprexa, that they knew would lead to the injury and death of  
literally thousands of people. If this isn't criminal, I don't know  
what is."
