This site deals only with the corporate corruption of science, and makes no inference about the motives or activities of individuals involved.
There are many reasons why individuals become embroiled in corporate corruption activities - from political zealotry to over-enthusiastic activism; from gullibility to greed.
Please read the OVERVIEW carefully, and make up your own mind.

Newman Partners Ltd
This was a science-administration firm run by the brothers Lloyd (Larry) and Fred Newman. Fred was a silent partner in the firm because he was the main in-house lawyer with Philip Morris who also contracted Newman Partners to provide cut-out services for their dubious research activities.
The arrangement came to an abrupt end in September 1990 when Fred suddenly retired from Philip Morris, and Larry returned to North Carolina where he continued to run the firm, but without Philip Morris as a client.
The company became embroiled in a major scandal over Bridgestone tires.
