Subj: Fwd: Is McKesson Board Complicit in Undermining Business Ethics?

Dear Ms. Rickard,

I believe that the Institute for Legal Reform ought to have as part of its anti-plaintiffs' lawyers arsenal argumentation to the effect that plaintiffs' lawyers undermine business ethics.

Yesterday I sent the below email to the McKesson Corporation directors related to a class action lawsuit that is pending against McKesson. In the email, I urge the directors to reflect on whether their settlement unnecessarily abets the plaintiffs' lawyers in their undermining of business ethics.

If you have any thoughts about this, I would be interested in hearing from you.

Subj: Is McKesson Board Complicit in Undermining Business Ethics?

To McKesson Corporation Directors:

I am a non-professional objector in class action lawsuits. Part of the reason for this is that I believe class action lawsuits undermine business ethics. My argumentation about this is set forth at length in this article : Does the Law Undermine Business Ethics?

I have seen publicized the settlement that McKesson Corporation has entered into in the class action against it related to drug pricing, the website for which is here: McKessonAWPSettlement.

I hope that the McKesson Board will reflect on whether, by its actions related to the drug pricing class action, the Board is unnecessarily complicit in undermining business ethics.

Thank you.
