Fen-phen's spiral

From an October Forbes article: "You're to be forgiven if you thought the fen-phen crisis was over. Two years after it first emerged in 1997, Wyeth officials told investors it would cost a maximum of $4.75 billion to fix. As of the second quarter of [last] year the company had reserved $16.6 billion for the problem. Thanks to guys like [Houston attorney George] Fleming, it's a safe bet the costs will climb further."
