Did I mention the textbook that Chuck Nemeroff wrote, oops – or rather he didn’t, but he might have done, or at least he might have seen some drafts and approved them… who knows?
Probably not Chuck because his memory is so bad – maybe that’s why he forgot to disclose all that cash he got from drug companies (wasn’t it about $1.5 million?).
That’s one poor memory!
Anyway, now he’s really pissed off and wants to sue POGO because they ran a story about the ghostwritten Nemeroff textbook – and so did the the New York Times in their story: Drug Maker Wrote Book Under 2 Doctors’ Names, Documents Say

Interesting that Nemeroff thinks his reputation has been damaged by these revalations, rather than by what he has actually done in his long and chequered career.
