Canada: Sanofi flashes after the important judicial victory in the United States

Quebec judicial council rejects complaint over judge's sexual assault ruling

  Quebec judicial council rejects complaint over judge's sexual assault ruling MONTREAL — The Quebec judicial council has rejected complaints about a judge who granted a conditional discharge to a young engineer who pleaded guilty to sexual assault and voyeurism. Quebec court Judge Matthieu Poliquin's June 2022 decision to grant Simon Houle probation and a conditional discharge — in part because a conviction would have made it hard for Houle to travel for his job as an engineer — caused an uproar in the province. In a decision posted to its website last week, the council, without naming any of the particulars in the case, found that there was no breach by the judge of his ethical obligations, and the council found the complaints against him un

Sanofi flies from more than 8% to 92.5 euros at the opening of the Paris market, carried by a major legal victory in the United States. Several thousand complaints filed in front of the federal justice against the GSK, Pfizer, Boehringer Ingelheim pharmaceutical groups and the French giant establishing a link between Zantac, a drug against gastric acidity, and cancer were rejected Tuesday by a Florida judge. Robin Rosenberg, district judge of West Palm Beach, estimated that complaints were not supported by solid scientific arguments.

The Zantac, approved in 1983, became the best -selling medication in the world in 1988 and one of the first to exceed $ 1 billion in annual sales. First marketed by a GSK predecessor, he was then successively sold in Pfizer, Boehringer then finally Sanofi.

If it is good news for the laboratories that have all marketed this drug at different times, the latter are still targeted by tens of thousands of similar complaints before state courts.

But the decision of Florida judge represents "the best scenario for GSK and the co -accused," says Citi. This will also probably influence legal proceedings for the next state legislation next year. There is now a strong possibility that Zantac's multi-discharge dispute collapses, notes Jefferies. Although it is not yet finished, given the separate legal proceedings in progress in California and Delaware, the audience in Florida is a "significant positive step".

  Sanofi flambe après l'importante victoire judiciaire aux États-Unis

Drawing the line between terrible judging and judicial misconduct .
The attempted weaponization of judicial ethics complaints is not a new phenomenon. It dates back to times even more contentious than our own. On May 24, 1854, a Black man named Anthony Burns was seized in Boston by a deputy federal marshal, pursuant to a warrant under the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850. Brought in manacles before a federal commissioner named Edward Loring, the captive was informed that his “master,” a Virginian named Charles Suttle, was there to take him back to enslavement, following the formality of a short hearing that Burns – who appeared dispirited and alone – had no meaningful chance of contesting.
