Send Federally Convicted Startup Medical Device Executives: William (Bill) Facteau & Patrick (Pat) Fabian to Jail
August 14, 2016
Many people say they want to create change but, do little to see that change occurs. Signing & sharing this petition that goes directly to Judge Allison Burroughs, who is responsible for their sentencing, is the easiest step you can take to make the greatest impact to punish federally convicted startup medical device executives. A Boston federal jury, under the direction of Judge Allison D. Burroughs, convicted Johnson & Johnson’s Acclarent’s CEO William (Bill) Facteau & Patrick (Pat) Fabian on 10 misdemeanors. Facteau is currently CEO of venture capital-funded startup EarLens and Fabian is currently CCO of venture capital-funded startup NxThera. Please sign and share this petition that goes DIRECTLY TO JUDGE ALLISON BURROUGHS and tell her that you won’t see illegal behavior encouraged, replicated and rewarded. As the sole federal whistleblower in this case, I’ve been removed from the industry, isn’t it time we do the same with the executives who’ve been convicted of federal crimes?
This case represents the first time a medical device was taken off the market before it could do potential damage to the community. Discovered during the criminal trial, the adverse events were under-reported to FDA as we’ve seen with many other medical devices, long after patients were injured.
If you’ve been injured by Gynecare mesh, acquired by Johnson & Johnson or Conceptus birth control later acquired by Bayer renamed Essure, please understand that the world’s largest venture capital firm, New Enterprise Associates (NEA) funded these companies along with Acclarent later purchased by Johnson & Johnson. This is just the first step in exposing a long line of corruption where NEA has been paid to kill women. Please do your part, sign and share the petition that goes directly to the judge responsible for sentencing. Thank you to MAM-Mesh Awareness Movement, Mesh Problems, Mesh Medical News Desk and all the women and men who have signed and shared the petition.
