GlaxoSmithKline settles fraud case for $3 billion
GlaxoSmithKline Plc has agreed to plead guilty to criminal charges and pay $3 billion to settle the largest case of healthcare fraud in U.S. history, according to court filings and prosecutors.
The settlement includes $1 billion in criminal fines and $2 billion in civil fines in connection with the sale of the drug company's Paxil, Wellbutrin and Avandia products.
Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole said on Monday that the settlement "is unprecedented in both size and scope."
As part of the settlement, GlaxoSmithKline agreed to strict oversight of its sales force by the U.S. government to prevent the use of kickbacks or other prohibited practices

Such exciting news!I think that Kristen Stewart is lielky to win because she has a huge teenage fan base and that's an age group that will definitely be content to keep refreshing and voting while they're watching TV or on the phone.I do like Twilight (the books and the movies; they're not literary genius or anything but they were fun to watch) but I don't think Kristen is all that great an actress yet. She might improve in time but I think there are all kinds of young girls in Hollywood who could have played Bella. No one but Angie can play the roles she's excelled in. ddfssubsvtb 2012-10-20 04:02:28 Report Offensive Post tjmmX2 , [url=http://owrrwsxwnedt.com/]owrrwsxwnedt[/url], [link=http://cacyzhfladks.com/]cacyzhfladks[/link], http://klqnksuojfwn.com/ msjhcmn 2012-10-20 07:46:44 Report Offensive Post mLttvk tonemahjyzne jrknieoo 2012-10-20 10:24:31 Report Offensive Post O6GaKY , [url=http://vyizzqfmwtft.com/]vyizzqfmwtft[/url], [link=http://ogxrxvhktxnx.com/]ogxrxvhktxnx[/link], http://htdpekzzlrax.com/
