Insys Therapeutics founder John Kapoor and four co-defendants have been found guilty of a racketeering conspiracy for paying doctors to prescribe its powerful opioid medication and then lying to insurance companies to ensure that the expensive fentanyl-based painkiller would be covered.

This was a criminal conviction which is significant. Kapoor will almost certainly go to jail.

Kapoor's conviction is a step in the right direction to more just society. Someday we may see similar convictions in the family law system but the reality is that will be a much more difficult hill to climb because the guilty parties are the lawyers and judges who are supposed to be ensuring justice.

Justice - it's a long road.
