A state appellate court panel has sided with pharmaceutical giant
GlaxoSmithKline in a Paxil wrongful death claim that had been filed by a woman who maintained she was essentially forced to have an abortion because her unborn child developed severe, in-utero birth defects due to her use of the antidepressant medication during pregnancy.
In a non-precedential decision filed on Nov. 27, the three-judge Superior Court panel wrote that a Philadelphia Common Pleas Court judge was correct in July 2012 to issue summary judgment to the drugmaker in a case initiated by Joanne Thomas on behalf of her deceased child, Ryan Swindle.

Want to know why it's wrong?
I'm about to drop a bombshell for GSK and their attorneys, King & Spalding, something I'm sure they are already aware of as they searched frantically through a series of Paxil posts on this blog 5 days ago. [Fig 1]
All one had to do was join the dots...but nobody did... until now.
Who was it that said GSK's history of fraud and concealment was just part of an era?
Funnily enough, I was prepared to let this go but Glaxo, it appears, just don't want to play ball with a woman they have known for some time, 2001 to be precise.
Stay tuned for the exclusive.
Meantime here's some food for thought for King & Spalding.
