A jury in Kansas City has awarded $2-Billion to one of the victims of former pharmacist Robert Courtney’s drug dilution practices. Jurors awarded Georgia Hayes, whose chemotherapy medicine had been watered down, the $2-Billion in punitive damages and more than $225-Million in actual damages. Hayes had previously reached a settlement in a lawsuit against drug makers Bristol-Myers-Squibb and Eli Lilly. The criminal case against Courtney has seen the former pharmacist plead guilty to drug tampering. He’s scheduled to be sentenced in December.
