    These lawyers should get the maxium penality, how can they do inoccent clients that way, the clients were the victims, & they will be the ones to suffer from the diet drug for the rest of there lives, there quality of life & there life will be shortened & they have to suffer for this as well as there families, the lawyers will haft to answer to the Lord for what they did to 400 deserving victims, my heart goes out to all the clients all 400 victim,s, no amount of money will make up for what they have been through, they deserve a better life while there still here to enjoy a few things in life, i personally know someone that took the drug & I know what the drug did to this person, and they did not deserve what the lawyers did to my friend or the other victims that took the drug & trusted there lawyer to make the drug company pay for what they did to the victims by not telling them what the drug would do to them, so much for honesty and having trust in your lawyer, lynda, Ky.
