Former Glaxo lawyer indicted again over drug probe

A former lawyer for GlaxoSmithKline has been reindicted for obstructing a probe into the company's marketing practices for a drug after the first indictment was dismissed because of errors by prosecutors, the Justice Department said on Thursday.

Lauren Stevens was charged again with four counts of making false statements, one count of obstruction of justice and one count of falsifying and concealing documents related to Glaxo's promotion of the anti-depressant drug for weight loss, which had not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
