Linda Lovelace, widow of Judge Eddie C. Lovelace who died in September after being exposed to tainted steroid injections in Nashville, has been invited to testify at the congressional hearings in Washington, D.C. against the New England Compounding Center that is accused of shipping thousands of vials of contaminated drugs across the country. Lawyer Mark P. Chalos with Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, along with another attorney and client, were invited to the hearings as well. Chalos’ firm represents several affected families across the county, including at least four in Tennessee. The Tennessean has the story.
