Connecticut Law Tribune, Vol. 34, No. 27

Lawyers from Wiggin and Dana recently won a defense verdict for former CVS Vice President John R. "Jack" Kramer in Rhode Island federal court after Kramer and a codefendant collectively faced 46 counts of bribery, mail fraud and conspiracy.

The two were part of a probe into influence peddling at the Rhode Island statehouse and specifically came under fire for allegedly paying former Rhode Island State Sen. John Celona to kill legislation opposed by CVS or sponsor bills the company supported.
