Liz,

The link for "Those Who Support Barrett" appears to be broken.

David N. Brown

I'm looking into this, and it looks to me like even "alties" are leary of this. I'm working on a writeup of an incident from back in 2006, where Rashid Buttar said, "How could the head PhD for Doctors Data see thousands of his own company's tests showing heavy metals being excreted with TD-DMPS as the chelating agent say that TD-DMPS does not trans the dermal? Logic would dictate that if TD-DMPS does not cross the skin, but the provocation tests show excretion of heavy metals while non-provocation tests are negative, then the tests themselves are wrong!"

Tsu Dho Nimh

Why doesn't DDI sue the American College of Medical Toxicology for denouncing provoked testing in diagnosing toxic metal loads?

July 4 2010 Mike Stanton Doctors Data sues QuackWatch Action For Autism

You can add http://www.ratbags.com/rsoles/history/2010/07july.htm#3drsdata to the list of places that mention the assault on Dr Barrett.

Thanks for pulling together this information. When someone publicly asks for proof of claims, the right thing to do is provide it, not sue them to try to shut them up. That goes x10 for medicine, since then you're dealing with human life and suffering.

David N. Brown

I have a 9-page pre-mortem on this lawsuit on the evilpossum.weebly "cures" page. My main conclusion: the suit depends almost entirely on the contention that "quackwatch" is a commercial rather than "non-profit" organization. I think there's a strong possibility it will be dismissed or withdrawn this week.

But Barret clearly has conflicts of interest. He gets paid hundreds of thousands of dollars every year to do conferences for pharma sales reps. I also find it odd that Barret claims everything that can't be patented is quackery. He even goes after herbs, which are where we find some of the chemicals to make our medicines. He's filed thousands of frivolous suits against different doctors around the country (which were all thrown out by the judges) and then referenced his own suits as proof that those doctors were fraudulent. He seems like a corrupt individual to me and he seems to just be working for Pharmaceutical companies.

More spam from Bolen and Co!

I do not find any evidence for that at all. So unless you can provide the dates of the conferences and incontrovertable evidence that Barrett was even there...it's a lie.

I also find it odd that Barret claims everything that can't be patented is quackery.

I've searched the Quackwatch website. I do not find a single instance that Barrett claims that a treatment must be patented, or it's quackery. So that's another lie from Shriegl


He even goes after herbs, which are where we find some of the chemicals to make our medicines.

No, I believe your interpretation is incorrect. Dr. Barrett criticizes people who make unsupportable claims for herbal medicines.

He's filed thousands of frivolous suits against different doctors around the country

I believe this is again exaggeration or misreprentation.

He seems like a corrupt individual to me and he seems to just be working for Pharmaceutical companies.

You are of course entitled to your own opinon, but not your owne facts.

Tim Bolen

Stephen Barrett is in big trouble in the Doctor's Data v Barrett case.

BIG trouble.

You can follow the case at http:www.boleneport.com. There you can sign up for the newsletter, and follow the case as it happens.

Currently Barrett has filed a Motion to Dismiss the case, but there is little chance that will happen. His reason he wants a Dismissal? He claims he is "assisting the government..."

Next comes "discovery," a process where Barrett will have to cough up thousands of documents, then go into a video-taped Deposition where he will be forced to answer questions about his support network - those that helped him get his articles on the first page of search engines.

Barrett's lead attorney seems to have disappeared, and he has been LATE making EVERY filing deadline since the case began.

The fun has just begun.

MrC

I guess I could check Tim Bolen's website. Or I could get ahold of the docket for the case and the motion to dismiss.

The docket shows that there have been motions for extra time to respond, and that those have been granted in whole or in part. That's not the same thing as "being late" to me.

The motion to dismiss is based on the SLAPP laws.

"Next comes "discovery," a process where Barrett will have to cough up thousands of documents, then go into a video-taped Deposition where he will be forced to answer questions about his support network - those that helped him get his articles on the first page of search engines."

Why? This sounds like a fishing expedition. How is getting articles on the front page of search engines (should this be true) pertinent to the case at hand? If this is the purpose of the lawsuit, then a dismissal under SLAPP is quite appropriate.
