Glaxo's lead attorney in the Kilker trial was King & Spalding partner, Chilton Varner.


In her closing argument, Varner stated: "FDA repeatedly reviewed and approved the safety of Paxil, including the scientific data and the animal tests, 13 different times between 1992 and 2004."


In his final summation, Tracy told the jury: "Ms. Varner has said time and time and time again the FDA rubber-stamped" the label.


"What we know is the FDA didn't have all their information," he said.


"The FDA didn't know what they thought about the animal studies," he stated. "The FDA didn't know the analysis they had done."


"And one thing you need to understand is to this day, the FDA still hasn't seen these documents," Tracey told the jury.


"To this day, only my experts have seen the internal GSK documents," he said. "To this day, you are the only people outside of this courthouse that have laid eyes on these documents."


"These documents were under seal until this trial began," he pointed out.
