Med Device Company Accused of Using Strippers and Hookers as Kickbacks

The case against Blackstone Medical gets more and more sordid. Case now claims doctors were plied with strip club excursions, and in one case a sales rep performed with the strippers on stage. Jim Edwards in BNET:

Faced with a case in which Blackstone Medical sales reps allegedly provided prostitutes and strippers to doctors who agreed to use its spinal implants, a federal appeals court has ruled that the trial judges underneath them have applied the false claims and anti-kickback statutes too strictly.”
