As part of a Federal Trade Commission investigation into a settlement between Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Barr Laboratories, delaying entry of generic competitors to Boehringer's Aggrenox® and Mirapex®, Boehringer and Barr are ordered to redact and produce certain documents requested by the FTC, according to a Sept. 27 order by the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
The FTC sought an order enforcing its subpoena duces tecum and declaring that the documents it had requested therein are not privileged. While the court declined to order the defendants to produce all the requested documents, it limited its denial to certain specific categories, and it ordered that the rest be redacted and disclosed (FTC v. Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals Inc., D.D.C., No. 1:09-mc-00564-JMF, 9/27/12).

All Bloomberg BNA treatises are available on standing order, which ensures you will always receive the most current edition of the book or supplement of the title you have ordered from Bloomberg BNA’s book division. As soon as a new supplement or edition is published (usually annually) for a title you’ve previously purchased and requested to be placed on standing order, we’ll ship it to you to review for 30 days without any obligation. During this period, you can either (a) honor the invoice and receive a 5% discount (in addition to any other discounts you may qualify for) off the then-current price of the update, plus shipping and handling or (b) return the book(s), in which case, your invoice will be cancelled upon receipt of the book(s). Call us for a prepaid UPS label for your return. It’s as simple and easy as that. Most importantly, standing orders mean you will never have to worry about the timeliness of the information you’re relying on. And, you may discontinue standing orders at any time by contacting us at 1.800.960.1220 or by sending an email to email@example.com.
