This morning (or last night in the UK) US District Court Judge Jack Weinstein ruled in favor of Eli Lilly’s arguments for keeping the leaked Zyprexa documents under seal. His ruling affects those named in the recent injunction, namely MindFreedom, AHRP, various websites and a few individuals. The ruling does not apply to the press however. More later, once I’ve been able to read the 80-page ruling–churned out within 24 hours after Lilly filed its brief yesterday. That’s lightning fast by court standards.
TortsProf has a post up on this already, which includes some choice language the judge leveled at some of the central figures in this case.
The place to follow all the Zyprexa news is Furious Seasons. Not only has Phil Dawdy posted up the majority of the ‘secret’ documents as PDFs here, he is continuing to comment on what he is discovering in these documents.
