    A Canadian legal review publication called The Lawyers Weekly has published an article about new developments in the ME/CFS world which may impact related litigation. They use the IOM report, the Stanford brain studies, and the Japanese PET scan studies to discuss the changing front of ME/CFS litigation in Canada and the comparative lack of research funding for the disease in Canada.

    We need this sending to lawyers all round the world. Once they give a sniff of money to be made they'll be backing us all the way.
    Squeeky bum time for certain individuals here in the UK.

    Eventually a group of sharp and hungry lawyers will take this on, just like they did with tobacco.

    I look forward to seeing them squirm in the witness box.

    Please look me up lawyers, I think I could help you serve the underserved and make a good paycheck at the same time. Lots of evidence against my former employer, and I know where to guide you in regards to discovery!

    Well spotted, @Never Give Up

    They say if you want to know who's going to win an election, ask a bookie

    Perhaps we can add
    - if you want to know which way the wind is blowing in medical research, ask a lawyer

    Extremely interesting (I'm seeing Sasha's 'very' and raising it)

    I don't know who came up with this term 'underserved' that I've been seeing every five minutes for the past few months but every time I see it I misread it as 'undeserved', which reminds me (and no doubt all the other 98% of people who are misreading it) of 'undeserving'.

    What a rubbish word! Down with it! :mad:

    It's a euphemism for "passed over, or screwed over, or both".

    I know, but it's so easy to misread it as the opposite of what it means. Rubbish, rubbish word!
