A federal judge Tuesday rebuked attorney James Gottstein; Dr. David Egilman, an expert hired by plaintiffs; and New York Times reporter Alex Berenson for violating a protective order in a mass-tort action over the health risks of Zyprexa, an anti-psychotic drug made by Eli Lilly. The judge alleged that Berenson and Egilman had circumvented the order by having Gottstein subpoena Egilman for a case in Alaska, after which the documents would be sent to Berenson for an exclusive story.
