I thought it was about time to highlight one the other plaintiff heavy weights in the seroquel litigation Bailey Perrin Bailey LLP out of Houston Texas (also known as Houston Associates) along with Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. . These law firms were deemed the lead plaintiff counsel (here page 4) in the Seroquel litigation together compiling over 8000 of the some 28000 injured party cases. From what I can gather reading questionable comments from some of their supposed clients in Topix Seroquel Lawsuit Forum; they are also settling for somewhere in the ball park of what W&L has.
What I find quite interesting is that Bailey Perrin Bailey is also co-counsel in the state of Arkansas where AstraZeneca will be going to trial over the drug Seroquel in 2012 (Background here -> from the blog tmap & from bloomberg news ); and yet they have sold the injured parties they represent in the civil Seroquel litigation down the river in a settlement that will enrich BPB in the ball park of some 80 million dollars in profit , while leaving the injured parties with nothing more than a insulting token settlement in the very low thousands. On top of that action; to further add insult to injury, BPB will allow past, present, & future cost for the injured parties medical care to be heaped upon the government (Federal and States through Medicare, Medicaid, VA, Etc.) which is ultimately passed along to the American Tax Payer (that's you & me).
BPB has an estimated 6000+ Seroquel Cases and yet did not bring a single case to trial? Now they have been hired as co-counsel in the State of Arkansas to represent the public interest when they couldn't even represent the best interest of their own clients????
Something is very very wrong with this picture.......What percentage is BPB reaping in this deal with Arkansas? How many more millions of dollars will they gather up while those injured by Seroquel continue to suffer from the adverse effects, which include diabetes and related conditions (many of those forever mired down in abject poverty with substandard medical care) thanks to the so called representation of BPB.
Someone must begin to start questioning the ethics and professionalism being demonstrated in these kinds of seemingly reprehensible behaviors. Especially since BPB reached an agreement with AstraZeneca in the civil litigation to sell & market a low ball settlement offer to their clients, while still collecting for themselves in the neighborhood of 80 million dollars in profits..?
Not a bad deal for these sleazy ambulance chaser law firms...of course why not lose & screw over the injured party clients...the FDA is about to announce the next drug warning or questionable medical procedure that these law firms will be jumping up and down advertizing for new suckers to low ball swindle for another massive payday without ever having to take a case to trial...don't take my word for it...check out their web sites and TV commercials...then notice how their sites have been washed clean of Seroquel...?
Once again we can see here this is a huge WIN!! for (The Lawyers) even when they (The Lawyers) LOSE!! You start to wonder if Bailey Perrin Bailey and the majority of law firms involved in this litigation have any semblance of a moral consequence what so ever....
This also makes you start to wonder what other underhanded schemes the law firms may have been involved in...like just maybe recruiting past litigants they represented in the Zyprexa litigation & settlement into the Seroquel Litigation as eager settlement acceptance canidate ringers...? What was really going on in those secret backroom meetings with AstraZeneca's billion dollar legal
Usually, when something doesn't quite pass the smell test; we need to start looking deeper, much deeper...That's a little hint & gift by the way; that I'm passing along to the dress suits @ the Department of Justice and the Attorney General's Office in Washington DC while they are sitting around drinking those eight dollar cups of coffee & munching on sixteen dollar muffins.
The more we dig and gather information about what has conspired, and continues to conspire in this litigation & the corrupted legal system itself....the more questions that surface which are quite disconcerting to state it as mildly as possible...We are a Nation based & grounded upon the principles of Law and Equal Justice...if those principles have been trodden upon or have been corrupted...our Nation stands today in great peril...
