    Did you hear about this? A Kansas City jury awarded a cancer victim more than $2 billion yesterday in her lawsuit against pharmacist Robert Courtney. Courtney had already pleaded guilty to diluting the cancer prescriptions of hundreds of patients (including my deceased father-in-law) in order to pocket the profits and live the high life. Of course, this plaintiff will never see her money since Courtney's in jail and his assets are frozen, but the message was sent.

    I never met my husband's father. I wonder if he would be alive today if Courtney had not tampered with his treatments? This all came to mind while listening to "Judgment Day" . . . [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img]

    I did hear something about this, but not about why she was awarded so much money. I can not believe what some people will do just to increase there own bottom line!

    To bad they can't charge this guy for murder.

    Wow. Were there any other defendants, and if so, is there joint and several liability? Were punitives part of the award? In any case, that's huge.

    There were no other defendants, although other cases against the Pharmacist are pending. The Pharmacist's assests were seized and the money will be divided up between the litigants. Even though the damages awarded are astronomical, it'still doesn't make up for the pain (physically and mentally) that the Cancer patients had to endure. The inhumanity of the Pharmacist is still hard to believe. I am a firm believer of "an eye for an eye" form of justice. In a sense the Pharmacist has been given his own death sentence. He will never see the light of day outside of prison. And rightly so. He'll die a slow death, comparable (menatlly anyway) to the same death he sentenced his cancer customers to. Payback is a Bitch.

    I think that's disgusting that a "doctor" would do this, and why someone would do that is beyond me.

    But is the full $2 billion going to be awarded? I think the crime is horrible, but c'mon, $2 billion?! It's times like these when I realize how tough it really is to put a price on a human life.

    Wow. What the fuck possessed that jerk to do something like that. How can someone be so cruel like that?

    I hope this Courtney character rots in hell.
