GlaxoSmithKline fined $3 billion for healthcare fraud

Largest fine ever payed by a drug company. Bribing doctors to prescribe their drugs, even if it was for an unlabeled use.

The Wikipedia info has numerous cases listed of all their settlements and suits. Pretty amazing what these guys get away with. And they netted a cool $5.5 billion last year.
