GSK, the company that help you to 'do more, feel better and live longer' have been ordered to pay an Otara [New Zealand] pharmacy for the costs of recalling a suspected faulty medicine.
The New Zealand Herald writes:
David 1 Goliath 0
Ian Johnson Pharmacy took GlaxoSmithKline to court seeking reasonable payment for expenses it incurred after the Marevan brand of blood-thinning medicine warfarin was recalled in January.
Manukau District Court Judge Andree Wiltens found the pharmaceutical company should have paid a reasonable and proper price to Ian Johnson Pharmacy for its services.
"The necessity or desirability of complying with an ethical or moral obligation cannot be the basis for disentitling a claim for compensation for the time/effort involved in such compliance," he said.
