David Egilman Needs Research Help for Projects Related to Suing Corporations for Illness – Job

Within the toxic tort litigation world, Dr. David Egilman of Brown certainly ranks high on the list of expert witnesses that are especially controversial as between many plaintiff’s lawyers and many defense lawyers. He operates Never Again Consulting, and the business apparently is a regular advertiser on idealist. In a bold move, he once sued defense lawyers and other experts. He also took out an ad in a journal to publish a paper that a journal rejected. Today, he is the Editor-in-Chief for the International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health.

As for his testimony, courts sometimes refuse to allow him to testify, but he presses on. His Vioxx related work created a range of issues – see here, and produced a range of events in and out of court.

Dr. Egilman, it turns out, is looking for help, as I learned from a friend. The online ad is here, and is pasted below in full text:
