Yummy Schadenfreude

A researcher at a pharmaceutical company was laid off shortly after another company acquired his employer, and shut down their research center.

Well, a few days ago, he was contacted by the blokes wot fired him, and asked to testify on their behalf in some patent litigation.

They offered a consulting fee and legal representation, but he declined, and contacted the attorneys for the other side.

His last sentence, “I explained that I do not want money but maybe they could re-evaluate how they are going to treat the R&D inventors in the future. You know, in case they need them again,” is a hoot.
