Battling Goliath

Inside a $22 Billion Legal Scandal

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Batting Goliath: Inside a $22 Billion Legal Scandal is the compelling true story of one man’s quest to hold a corporate giant accountable for the blind greed that put six million lives at risk. Wyeth, the makers of fen-phen, circumvented Food and Drug Administration regulations to push their miracle drug cocktail on overweight consumers.  They then engaged in a complex cover-up of dangerous side effects fearing an FDA backlash.  Fen-phen was finally pulled from pharmacy shelves but only after mounting deaths and illnesses became too numerous to ignore.

With his Midwestern work ethic and fighter’s spirit, attorney Kip Petroff passionately led the charge in courtrooms across the country despite the toll on his personal and professional life. His aggressive strategy resulted in the first verdict, an historic award that ultimately led to a nationwide settlement. But the corruption that followed would test his early commitment to bring justice to the drugs’ victims. The massive class action would drag on for more than a decade, spawning a host of shadowy back-room pacts, threats, allegations, and deceit.

Relying on his principles and leaning heavily on his faith, Petroff persevered for himself and his clients.  His inspirational story is proof that each of us has the power to stand up to Goliath, whoever—and whatever—it may be.
