Once again, Depuy has no regard for their sales reps and would do whatever it takes to win a lawsuit. Do not be the fall guy for Depuy and JNJ!
"This is a serious matter that requires serious-you know-serious treatment and has serious ramifications," U.S. District Judge Ed Kinkeade of the Northern District of Texas said during the hearing in his Dallas courtroom.
Kinkeade said he would not jump to conclusions, but "it is certainly disturbing and disconcerting to me."
The issue came up after orthopedic surgeon Dr. David Shein filed an affidavit in Alicea v. DePuy Orthopaedics Sunday night alleging that a DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. sales representative told him during a surgery-related conversation at his hospital in the Bronx on Oct. 13 that "there could be ramifications" for the doctor's medical practice in connection with his upcoming Dallas testimony.
Shein said in the affidavit that the sales rep complained to him that the lawyers were "peppering him" and the "business in Dallas was freaking [him] out." Shein said in the affidavit that the sales rep told him DePuy lawyers had contacted him on Oct. 12 and that the conversation made him anxious.
