Pfizer Lawsuit Tampering

              On the 18th of September Pfizer claimed that the consultant to the plaintiffs’ attorney tried to tamper with evidence in the lawsuits over Pfizer’s epilepsy drug, Neurontin.

A brown university medical professor named Dr. David Egilman “improperly contacted” the physician who was treating the man whose family claims he killed himself as a result of taking the drug. Pfizer argues that the letter from Egilman to Shearer’s doctor was an attempt to, shortly before her deposition in court, taint the doctor’s perception of Pfizer by enclosing in his letter to Dr. Lisa Catapano-Friedman an e-mail that is confidential between Pfizer employees along with other documents.

Pfizer has requested appropriate sanctions on Egilman.
There are claims that New York based Pfizer’s drug, Neurontin greatens the risk of suicide. There are now about 1,200 lawsuits against Pfizer for the claims against this drug but Pfizer denies any connection between the two.
