"Lawyers behind lame Digitek claims face punishment"



"U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin plans to punish lawyers who filed worthless claims against Mylan Pharmaceuticals and Actavis Totowa." Defense lawyers spent more than $100,000 establishing that some plaintiffs who claimed injury from the heart medication had other causes of death listed on their death certificate, and at least one lawyer admitted that his client had never used the drug.
