A supplier that sells an international version of Abbott‘s (NYSE:ABT) FreeStyle Diabetes test strips committed discovery fraud when it forked over only a select group of relevant documents last year, according to a U.S. magistrate judge. Lois Bloom ruled that the supplier, H&H, lost the right to invoke attorney-client privilege when it is deposed about the document production.
The spat dates back to October of 2015, when Abbott requested documents from an array of international pharmacies, distributors, importers and suppliers of its test strips. In January last year, a judge held a conference between Abbott and the named organizations to address various discovery issues.
