~~~~~~~~~ MindFreedom News - 3 January 2007 Nonviolent Revolution in Mental Health To unsubscribe see BOTTOM of this message. http://www.MindFreedom.org - please forward MindFreedom Battles Eli Lilly in Court Today Over Secret Zyprexa File 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."
