Has Stephen Barrett’s “Puppet Master” Appeared?

I think the arrival of Michael K. Botts, Esq. as Stephen Barrett’s attorney in the Doctor’s Data v Barrett, Federal lawsuit is significant.

Stephen Barrett, who has no income of his own, he claims, had to go to his wife Judith the other day, I think, and say“Honey, I need an increase in my allowance this month.  I’m getting sued in Fed Court in Chicago now, and I’m going to need $250,000 this month as a retainer, and … Continue reading Doctor’s Data Laboratory Files Federal Lawsuit Against Barrett, Quackwatch, NCAHF, Consumer Health Digest..
