New York law­suit again ac­cus­es Mar­tin Shkre­li of ma­nip­u­la­tion from be­hind bars

As part of Mar­tin Shkre­li’s ef­forts to con­tin­ue run­ning his biotech busi­ness from be­hind bars, a sear­ing new law­suit in New York says the “Phar­ma Bro” ma­nip­u­lat­ed his com­pa­ny’s board of di­rec­tors for his own per­son­al gain.

Filed with the New York State Supreme Court just be­fore Thanks­giv­ing, two LLCs and three named share­hold­ers of Phoenixus AG — the par­ent com­pa­ny of Switzer­land-based Vy­era Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals — say that Shkre­li in­ter­fered with the board and Phoenixus’ top man­age­ment struc­ture by hand­pick­ing peo­ple he knew would op­er­ate in his in­ter­ests.
