On May 10, 2011, Judge Roger Titus in the District of Maryland acquitted Lauren Stevens, a former associate general counsel for GlaxoSmithKline, of obstructing justice and lying to federal authorities. The government had presented documentary evidence and called GSK employees to testify, in an attempt to prove that Stevens deliberately withheld information from the government and lied when she represented that she had produced all of the information requested by the government in an investigation relating to potential off-label marketing. After the government rested its case at trial, the defense moved for acquittal, and Judge Titus granted the motion, declaring that "it would be a miscarriage of justice to permit this case to go to the jury." Judge Titus added that "a lawyer should never fear prosecution because of advice that he or she has given to a client" in good faith.
