US Assistant Attorney Tanya Treadway has, since 2007, stopped just short of litigationally harrassing Reynolds as a result of advocacy she performed on behalf of pain management physician Steven Schneider, who - along with his wife, Linda Schneider - was arrested in late 2007 after federal agents raided the couple's pain clinic and home in an attempt to prosecute them for "unlawfully prescrib[ing] pain medications." Treadway's most recent subpoena "demands that Reynolds turn over all correspondence with attorneys, patients, Schneider family members, doctors, and others related to the [...] case," as well as "bank and credit card statements showing payments to or from clinic employees, patients, potential witnesses and others, including virtually every attorney Reynolds knows." The Chronicle states that the "subpoena is supposedly part of an obstruction of justice investigation aimed at Reynolds," who "became a thorn in Treadway's side" after she traveled to Kansas to aid the Schneiders, "whom she sees as being hounded by overzealous federal drug warriors." Treadway, on the other hand, views Reynolds' advocacy as evidence of her "sycophantic or parasitic relationship" with Steven and Linda Schneider; the prosecutor claims that Reynold's activism constitutes an attempt to "further the Pain Relief Network's political agenda and her own personal interests." However, according to the ACLU, which stepped in to assist Reynolds with her legal battle, "the subpoena should be withdrawn because it threatens Reynolds' First Amendment rights and amounts to little more than a 'fishing expedition' aimed at finding out information about the Schneider's defense." The civil liberties group filed an amended motion to quash the subpoena in early May of 2009.ACLU attorneys claim that the prosecution's actions "constitute an abuse of the grand jury process [and] would have 'a chilling effect' on Reynolds' constitutionally protected speech." Additionally, the ACLU contends that the subpoena represents further "misuse of the grand jury process because it is aimed at invading the defense camp of the Schneiders." In lay-speak, Reynolds' ACLU advocates have argued not only that the defendant simply exercised her right to free speech in her Schneider-related advocacy efforts but also that the prosecution is attempting to illegally snoop around for clues about the Schneiders' legal strategy.This paper presents a general overview of nuclear data evaluation and its applications as developed at NRG, Petten.Based on concepts such as robustness, reproducibility and automation, modern calculation tools are exploited to produce original nuclear data libraries that meet the current demands on quality and completeness.Many of the legal documents - including Treadway's Reynolds-aimed subpoena, Reynolds' initial motion to quash the grand jury subpoenas, and the ACLU's amended motion to quash them - are also available for public online viewing. Brinkema was a setback for federal prosecutors, who were seeking a life sentence for William E. Hurwitz, 61, a former pain specialist based in Mc Lean, was a key target of a far-reaching investigation into doctors, pharmacists and patients suspected of selling potent and addictive painkillers. District Court in Alexandria convicted Hurwitz on 16 counts of drug trafficking in April.The re-trial of Doctor William Hurwitz came to an end in July 2007. He was convicted twice of trafficking in narcotics, first in 2004, and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. Wexler improperly told jurors they could not consider whether Hurwitz acted in 'good faith' when he prescribed large doses of medicine. He has been in jail for about 2 1/2 years." According to the Post, "Patient advocates portrayed Hurwitz as heroic, saying that he only tried to help suffering people who had nowhere else to turn.Before the second jury got the case in April, Brinkema dismissed the counts involving the patient who died and the two who were seriously injured.
When she first took the case, Brinkema said she thought the dosages that Hurwitz prescribed were 'absolutely crazy.' But she said defense witnesses turned her around.
A month later, one thing the experts still haven't recommended is an alternative" ("Docs Cringe at the Thought of Painkillers Taken Off the Market").
Additionally, "On June 30, another FDA advisory panel recommended reducing a single adult dose of any acetaminophen from 1,000 milligrams to 650 milligrams - and making Tylenol available by prescription only." The recommendations resulted both from the panel's concerns about the prescription pain relievers' addictive properties as well as the effect of one of their active ingredients, acetaminophen, on users livers.
' An increasing body of respectable medical literature and expertise supports those types of high-dosage, opioid medications,' the judge said." The Post noted that "The first jury convicted Hurwitz on 50 counts, including trafficking that caused the death of one patient and seriously injured two others.
Jurors acquitted him of nine counts and deadlocked on three.
