Perils of Pain Meds

TASA ID: 13340

This article originally appeared in The Rheumatologist, 2008 - https://www.the-rheumatologist.org/article/perils-of-pain-meds/ and has been granted permission to be republished on The TASA Group website.

Over the last decade, an expansion in the use of opioids has been advocated by certain pain specialists as well as pharmaceutical companies. In my opinion, this has occurred in the absence of valid data that support the claims that opioids can effectively and safely be extended beyond cancer to most patients with chronic non-cancer pain with a low risk of addiction. Such claims have subsequently been found to be inaccurate, and the original
statement about the low rate of addiction to a common oxycodone sustained-release formulation has been shown to be false (as recently admitted by pharmaceutical company executives as a result of a Federal indictment).

Audio Evidence Forensics: Finding Signals In The Noise

The Value of Audio in Proving Your Case

TASA ID: 14235

Modern forensic and audio production tools can be very effective in repair and enhancement if it can be done. If a jury can hear recorded dialog so clearly to determine inflections of a voice, the breathing, the tone, then the emotion on tape makes for a far greater impact on the listener. Enhancement can be beneficial to bring out background noise revealing other evidence as well and this is not considered as an edit.

Manufacturer’s Representation:

A quick glimpse into mistakes and fortunes

TASA ID: 4718

Two years ago, I was contacted by a Memphis lawyer (not John Grisham) asking if I would help him with a case.  He represented a manufacturer’s representative who had tirelessly worked for two years to place a Canadian company’s product into Walmart only to be fired shortly thereafter.  Not surprisingly, he was never paid a commission.  It was one of several similar stories my profession encounters.
