RECOMMENDING A HIGHER DOSE OF
OPIOIDS TO ALLEVIATE DISCOMFORT. >> WE’RE GOING UP AGAINST A WELL
-FUNDED MACHINE. THEY MAKE BILLIONS OF AND WE’RE
DOLLARS, VERY CONFIDENT WE’RE
GOING TO TAKE THEM DOWN AND I
, WON’T REST UNTIL THEY GET
TAKEN DOWN. PERIOD. AMY: AS A LONG — YOUNG LAWYER
ROBERT BONSIGNORE CUT HIS TEETH
, ON A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT
AGAINST BIG TOBACCO AND SAYS
THIS MASS TORT HAS A LOT OF
SIMILARITES. >> HERE WE HAVE A PUBLIC HEALT

: OF HOW PHARMACEUTICAL
COMPANIES TARGETED CERTAIN
DOCTORS BASED ON THEIR
PRESCRIBING HABITS, INCENTIVZING

AND PROVIDE US WITH TESTIMONY,
THAT COULD BE ONE AVENUE BY WHICH THEY MIGHT FIND THEMSELVES
IN LESS HOT WATER. AMY: AMERISOURCEBERGEN, TEVA,

DOZEN COMPANIES BEING SUED,
