BIO / Resume / CV:
EW #3037 Ph.D. , is a Yale management school graduate with a decade of consulting experience in healthcare and related fields. David Stern is a partner and also has consulting experience in healthcare. David Boyum , a Harvard Ph.d in political economy, is our statistical expert and a policy analyst who has specialized in financial markets, illegal drugs, and medical care. The fourth is Robert Harris , a former Whiz Kid from the Pentagon days of Robert MacNamara, a former executive vice-president of the Urban Institute, and an experienced analyst in medical care, asbestos, housing, poverty and related fields.

The team has worked together for more than five years
1) in Canada on constitutional challenges to their national health insurance program (the government side for whom we worked won on both cases--one federal, the other provincial in New Brunswick);
2) in the Celotex bankruptcy case in Florida, where we presented a report on problems of representing different classes of beneficiaries (current and prospective) by plaintiff lawyers who wanted to run the company rather than disperse an insurance fund of one billion dollars:
3) an AARP case (before the IRS) where we explained why the organization's supplementary health insurance offerings were different from what a for-profit firm would provide;
4) a current business evaluation case in Philadelphia involving a critique of estimates of lost profits by the plaintiff against a Cabrini College, which failed to renew a camp lease to athletic facilities;
5) a series of asbestos cases where we have become expert on the question of who knew what facts about asbestos, when, and with what level of comprehension--Union Carbide is the defendant, and there are many cases ongoing. I testified in the West Virginia trial in October, where Union Carbide was the one company that did not settle. On the products liability side, our testimony was said to have been important in Union's relative victory;
6) tobacco cases in Ohio and elsewhere, in all of them we dealt with the public knowledge question of smoking's dangers and thus to what extent the public was or was not fooled by the claims of tobacco firms.
