Alan Minsk Quoted in Law360

On June 15, 2012 Alan Minsk was quoted in the Law360 article “FDA Probe Could Grow To Encompass Fresenius Empire.” “The FDA could say, ‘Is this just a one-off, or this systematic of a larger issue?'” Mr. Minsk says in the article. He goes on to say that a warning letter from the FDA could encourage litigation. “A plaintiffs’ lawyer could go to a judge and jury and say, ‘I’ve got a letter from a government agency that says you violated the law. You knew there was a problem — how much do you want to start settling for?'” FDA investigated the decision by Fresenius Medical Care North America to alert company-affiliated physicians of cardiac risks linked to a dialysis treatment months before other health professionals.
