On Dec. 2, 1996 — nine days before the FDA advisory committee would meet to consider Rezulin's approval — Fleming e-mailed to Martin an encrypted copy of Gueriguian's medical review. That same day, Fleming wrote in a separate e-mail to colleagues that Lumpkin had told him Gueriguian's review "is not FOIable." By this, Fleming suggested the document would be withheld from public view because consumers, the news media or others could not obtain it under the Freedom of Information Act.
