No appearance of impropriety here, no sirree:
Of course, Spitzer's is not the only legal attack on medical device manufacturers. One major class-action suit against Guidant and two other cardiac-device makers has been filed by Minnesota-based law firm Zimmerman Reed.
That has generated a lot of press attention. It's probably no coincidence �- as the St. Paul, Minn., Pioneer Press reports -� that Spitzer met with several Zimmerman Reed attorneys to discuss his campaign for New York governor only a week before announcing his own case against Guidant.
