Pfizer lawyer throws a fit over latest maraviroc whistleblower story
Pfizer's lawyer Joshua Levy from Ropes & Gray (who interrogated the maraviroc whistleblower last week), allegedly called the maraviroc whistleblower's lawyer and left a very caustic message this week.
Apparently Pfizer didn't appreciate my article PFIZER CATCHES MARAVIROC WHISTLEBLOWER.*
So to Joshua and the other Pfizer lawyers; and to the AstraZeneca PR people; and to anyone else featured on this blog, including Indian private detectives:
Please don't get upset. Write and tell me if you disagree with anything on this site and your letter will be published. Or just use the comment section to set the record straight. This is an open forum and we'd all love to hear from you!
This blog contains a mix of investigative reporting, spoofs, and satire.
That disclaimer contains lots of words, among them this sentence describing Question Authority: "You can expect to encounter generalizations, simplifications, hypothecations, exaggerations, inflations, fabrications, but mostly a lot of truths no one ever had the guts to tell you before. (The last part I wrote, my lawyer made me put in those other words.)"
It also contains this sentence: "This blog is designed to be provocative, confrontational, irreverent, mocking, impertinent, flippant, impudent, bold, enlightening, naughty, mischievous, funny and tongue-in-cheek. If you have no humor or if you are a boring person you are not supposed to read this blog."
So seriously, Joshua, since I have been told that you are using this blog in the internal legal maraviroc investigation, even contradicting witnesses using this blog, perhaps you should show those important statements to the employees you interrogate . . . just a thought.
And to all the corporations out there, don't get upset and don't beat up the whistleblower:
Instead, write Question Authority and tell your version of the story!
We'd love to hear from you. And if you decide not to respond, you can't really complain.
At Question Authority we're always ready to set the record straight.
