The Short of It

130 jurors don't like "Pharma Bro"

By J.A. HaglJune 27, 2017


To be the most hated man in the US in 2017 is an impressive feat. But "Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli takes the cake after price gouging medication for AIDs/HIV patients by raising prices from $13.5 to $750 a pill, harassing journalist via Twitter and purchasing the only Wu-Tang Clan's album for $2million before saying he wanted to destroy the album. Oh and don’t forget securities fraud, which he’s on trial for. Except the judge is having a hard time finding 12 jurors for a speedy and fair trial. The judge dismissed 130 jurors who at least strongly disliked Shkreli. I mean, jurors' favorite words were "evil," "snake," and "greed”  to describe him.
