'We were not told by OUR OWN LAWYERS of documents showing concealment of data'

Plaintiffs in Zyprexa diabetes settlement 


Response to 'We must not let reps provide "objective, educational material" re diabetes risk'

In addition, Dr Egilman was aware that the company was getting ready to settle with about 18,000 more Zyprexa victims, and that the second round of settlements would guarantee that the secret documents would remain sealed.

And as a condition of settlement, the 28,000 plaintiffs had to sign agreements promising never to discuss the charges made against the company related to Zyprexa.

According to several plaintiffs who settled out of court, they were not aware that there were documents that showed in many instances that Lilly knew full well that the injuries suffered could occur and had intentionally concealed the information from doctors and patients because it would have had a negative impact on Zyprexa sales.

In fact, these plaintiffs said
they were never told that these secret documents even existed much less that by signing settlement agreements they would be allowing more patients to be injured or killed because the documents would remain sealed.

They also said that they were completely surprised to learn that their attorneys had access to documents that could have been presented to a jury to prove that the allegations in their lawsuits were true when the media began reporting the story in December 2006.
