Chasing the Vermin

In lieu of anything about dogs, I leave you with this clip about the recent $750 million settlement with GlaxoSmithKline. 

The whistleblower in this case made $96 million, and as I note 100% of this award was paid for by GlaxoSmithKline.    The Government hits companies with up to triple damages in these case, and over $15 is returned to the U.S. taxpayer for ever $1 invested in prosecutions and investigations.  In case you wondered what I do for a living, this is it.

Way to go, Patrick! Congrats on closing this out, it's a huge victory for consumers.

Can't wait to see how the class action goes.

In the meantime, enjoy the day in the field and I can't wait to see the photos.
