Eli Lilly lawsuit – When the Melnick sisters reached a settlement with the drug company

The settlement, for an undisclosed sum, was reached ­on Day Two, after the first witness in the case, a Harvard public health doctor, testified that the drug DES, which was promoted by Lilly as a way to prevent miscarriages had indeed been shown to cause cancer. It also came ­after a lawyer for the sisters ­argued that Lilly had failed to test the drug’s effect on fetuses before promoting it.

Eli Lilly statement said. So, in other words: “we can’t care less, that will keep them quiet and in the meantime we’ll continue to poison people” …
