Drug-maker named in $1 billion Guatemala suit

Monday, April 6, 2015

Johns Hopkins University is being sued by 750 plaintiffs seeking $1 billion in compensation for its alleged role in U.S. government experiments during the 1940s and 1950s that deliberately infected subjects in Guatemala with venereal diseases.

The lawsuit, filed in Baltimore Circuit Court, also names the Rockefeller Foundation and the drugmaker Bristol-Myers Squibb as defendants.
