The article focuses on a recent decision by Kathleen Sebelius and the Health and Human Services Department to terminate its dealings with the 83-year-old Howard Solomon, the CEO of Forest Laboratories. Last September, Forest Labs entered into a plea deal and settled with the government rather than choosing to litigate a series of government suits claiming that Forest's marketing to doctors amounted to fraud against Medicare and Medicaid. HHS accepted Forest's plea deal without even a hint that Solomon would be forced to resign as part of their continued relationship with the company. Only after the plea was accepted did Sebilius send her letter to Forest and to Solomon. Forest will be reinstated to do business with Medicare, Medicaid and the VA only if Solomon steps down as CEO, even though no allegations were ever made against Solomon personally. He was never charged with, nor accused of, any misconduct.
