Eli Lilly’s DES Shame #keepLillyhonest

11 Jan

As you all know, the historic DES breast cancer trial in Boston, Massachusetts, USA was settled on January 9, 2013 after one testimony: http://tinyurl.com/abydxuz

Right now, the ball is in Eli Lilly’s court. The DES Daughters with pending breast cancer cases are waiting to see if Eli Lilly will honor its original agreement to mediate the rest of the cases, now that the first historic DES breast cancer trial has reached settlement.

The science that DES causes breast cancer is well-established. It is embarrassing for Eli Lilly to continue its claim that DES does not cause cancer. The DES daughters with pending DES breast cancer cases hope that Eli Lilly will honor its promise to settle the rest of these cases in good faith.

Note Judge Bowler had ordered Eli Lilly to mediate with “all due dispatch” in January 2012 because of the age and the failing health of the plaintiffs: http://www.courthousenews.com/2012/01/25/43345.htm

The Defendant drug companies have hired over 40 lawyers to fight the DES Daughters, spending millions while the plaintiffs are dying. Now that they finally capitulated on the second day in Court of the first historic DES breast cancer trial with a settlement of undisclosed sums to stop the trial, they need to be held accountable to their original agreement to deal in good faith.

The hashtag #keepLillyhonest is trending on Twitter re: the pending DES breast cancer cases.
