    Indeed it is:
    Familiar circumstances. Though precedent in the US will not translate to the UK, but I wouldn't be surprised if on the US side there weren't people with similar paid gigs as the PACE gang did.

    There is a lot of discussion over the influence of pharmaceutical companies but the influence of insurance companies has so far escaped scrutiny, even though they have very similar stakes involved. Over the last few decades this has meant evading billions in disability claims, although it's hard to estimate when that would have stopped being a problem entirely if a reliable treatment had been found as a result of creating competent services and research infrastructure.

    Reading that statement of Claim makes it very interesting that KP has settled. Reading the claim you have to keep telling yourself that these are only the plaintiffs' allegations.

    It must be worrying for the other defendants. One wonders whether KP settled because the case against them was overwhelming, or less serious.
