Pfizer Seeks Prempro Video’s Removal From Internet
By Cary O’Reilly and Jef Feeley
Dec. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Pfizer Inc. asked a judge to order the removal of an Internet video about its menopause medicines that the company says is misleading and aimed at swaying potential jurors in future trials over the pills.
The video, posted by plaintiffs’ lawyers who recently won more than $78 million in damages in a Pennsylvania trial over Pfizer’s Prempro hormone-replacement drug, violates state legal- ethics rules and threatens the integrity of pending cases, Pfizer’s attorneys said in a court filing. The video, titled “Prempro News Segment,” is posted to the YouTube.com Web site.
“Plaintiff’s counsel should be compelled to remove this video from the Internet and refrain from making any further inflammatory and prejudicial public statements” until the litigation is resolved, Pfizer’s lawyers said in a motion filed yesterday in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court.
