UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
February 14, 2008
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JEROME STEVENS PHARMACEUTICALS, INC., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Arthur D. Spatt United States District Judge
AMENDED MEMORANDUM OF DECISION AND ORDER
SPATT, District Judge.
On May 17, 2007, the United States of America (the "Government" or the "Plaintiff") filed a complaint against Jerome Stevens Pharmaceuticals (the "Defendant" or "Jerome"). The Government seeks an order, pursuant to Article 71 of the New York Civil Practice Law and Rules ("CPLR"), directing the Defendant to return a specific page of a Food and Drug Association ("FDA") memorandum ("page seven") that was allegedly inadvertently provided to the Defendant.
On January 29, 2008, this Court issued an Order granting the Government's motion for an order of seizure and directing the Defendant to "return page seven, all copies of page seven and all materials derived from page seven or containing information from page seven."
After a review of the Defendant's February 8, 2008 letter requesting clarification of this Court's January 29, 2008 Decision, the Court hereby amends that Decision as follows. The Defendant is directed to return or destroy page seven, all copies of page seven and all materials derived from page seven or containing information from page seven. Specifically, the Defendant may destroy, rather than return, materials derived from page seven or containing information from page seven, including attorney work product. The Defendant is directed to provide certification to the Government that all of the above information was destroyed.
