Try this with a few banksters (emphasis added):
Frustrated that even billion-dollar fines seem to have little effect on pharmaceutical firms, the Food and Drug Administration has increasingly signaled its intent to use a legal doctrine spawned by those long-gone rodents to bring criminal charges against top executives, even those who might have been unaware of company misdeeds.
Earlier this month, Eric Blumberg, FDA litigation chief, told an industry audience that his agency was looking for cases to use what is known as the Park Doctrine as a tool to “change the corporate culture” of firms that have thus far shrugged off other penalties.
In an interview Thursday, Blumberg was pointed.
“They need to take this seriously and find out what is going on in the marketing and sales divisions of their companies,” he said of pharmaceutical executives. “In my view, one thing that will get executives’ attention is a few cases in which we have convicted two-legged defendants.”
