Bob Riley and Troy King: The Saga Continues
Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, February 1, 2010
It’s well known that Alabama Governor Bob Riley and Attorney General Troy King, both Republicans, have been at odds with each other over issues of state governance most notably concerning the operation of bingo games, which state law allows, although its electronic form continues causing much consternation among them and Alabama jurists.
Troy King has recently come under fire for requesting judges in five counties to dismiss lawsuit cases the several District’s Attorneys have filed against the pharmacies of several “big box” pharmacy retailers for wrongfully filling prescriptions by substituting with generic medications instead when they were not specifically ordered. He may likely find himself answering to the Alabama Supreme Court – and possibly the State Bar Association – for his actions. He calls the DAs’ lawsuits against CVS Caremark Corporation, Rite Aid Corporation, Wal-Mart Stores and Walgreen Company for deceptive trade practice as “frivolous.”
Just to set the record straight, if you were specifically ordered to purchase a Ford, and you went to buy a Ford, had a piece of paper upon which were the instructions “Buy A Ford,” and were instead given a Toyota, which was represented as a Ford, would you believe that you were wronged?
