Forest Labs broke the law - paid $313 million

Continuing my series of illegal promotion by Pharma companies, let’s focus on Forest Labs, which recently pled guilty to obstruction of justice, distributing an unapproved drug and illegally promoting two other meds.  The drugs in question were Levothroid, an oral med for thyroid conditions, and two antidepressants - Celexa and Lexapro.  Forest Labs also agreed to pay $313 million, which includes $164 million in criminal penalties  Keep in mind that almost all of this Pharma co. money is taxpayer money.

Many of you have emailed wanting to see the documents in cases like these  Below are the following: 1) Corporate Integrity Agreement; 2) Plea Agreement, and 3) Settlement Agreement.
