Big business has been responsible for many recent events: lost jobs, bailouts costing the American taxpayers millions of dollars, and an epic recession. However, these recent events are nothing new in how big business behaves. Just a few short years ago, 60,000 people died after taking Vioxx and Merck took desperate and extreme actions to cover up this deadly mistake. Like A Civil Action and other great, true courtroom dramas that pit tiny Davids against corporate Goliaths, All the Justice Money Can Buy introduces the world to Mark Lanier, a dynamic and ingenious litigator who went to battle in the courtroom for the American public against the endless stream of Merck's slick and high-stakes defence lawyers. Big money too often equals justice for giant big businesses and Lanier rose up against this legal behemoth and became a courtroom hero to the wronged plaintiffs. Author and investigative journalist Snigdha Prakash was most recently a reporter for NPR, from 1998 to 2007, where she investigated and documented several important chapters in Vioxx's history on NPR's flagship news magazines, "All Things Considered" and "Morning Edition." Her work gave her a deep knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry, product liability litigation, and extensive sources. Comprehensively researched and written in lucid and penetrating prose, All the Justice Money Can Buy forces the public to revisit the age old question: What is the true price of justice?
