    U.S. Attorney: J&J Used Kickbacks To Hype Sales

    The allegations are in a complaint filed by the U.S. Attorney in Boston, whose office has joined two whistle-blower cases. One was filed in 2003 by a former Omnicare pharmacist in Chicago, Bernard Lisitza, who alleges he was fired after he challenged the Risperdal kickbacks and other improper practices at the company. The other was filed by former Omnicare financial analyst David Kammerer in 2005, after he resigned from the company.

    Risperdal brought J&J $1.73 billion in sales in the first nine months of 2009, nearly 4 percent of its $45.3 billion in total revenue.

    ----------------

    Republicans notified twice and ignored complaints both times. Figures. For Republicans, "felony" is the new "capitalism".
