Teva Pharmaceuticals, one of the bulwarks of the Israeli economy, has decided not to fight a court ruling that, essentially, leaves the drugmaker looking insensitive heartless. A Tel Aviv District Labor Court judge ordered Teva to pay roughly $600,000, including court costs, to the estate of a woman who served as the assistant to former ceo and president Israel Makov, but was later fired after she was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, Globes reports. In her ruling, Judge Ariella Gilzer-Kats sharply criticized Teva saying that "we were shown a dismal picture, which is inappropriate for a company in a civilized country, especially for a public company." Indeed, the behavior is in sharp contract to a company that is known for contributing not only to the economy, but Israeli society at large.
