Former GSK lawyer’s obstruction indictment thrown out, but case may not be over yet

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

The attorneys for Lauren Stevens, the former associate general counsel for GlaxoSmithKline who was charged last November with obstructing a US FDA investigation into whether GSK marketed its antidepressant Wellbutrin XL for unapproved use, have convinced a federal judge in Maryland to throw out the indictment. In a 19-page order, Judge Roger Titus of the US District Court for the District of Delaware found that prosecutors gave "erroneous and prejudicial legal advice" when describing her defence to a grand jury. However, Judge Titus ruled that the government can seek a new indictment before a different grand jury.
