This is a contract with a built-in exit clause. Read the PR. It spells out clearly that the FDA thinks the exit clause is satisfied. You should assume they ran it through their legal department. The FDA will be proven wrong by Reduce-it, but by that time, it will be too late for Amarin. Never saw anything this unfair since DNDN. Anyway - unfair, idiotic, irresponsible, putting the patients in harm's way, etc, all those do not equate illegal.
It is not illegal until it is not proven to be illegal. FDA has made his own interpretation of the written rule, and it appears to be a forced one. A llot of posts have already pointed out the fake or at least weak ppoints of this interpretation, I address you to those posts
