Tauscher-Leto Pharmaceuticals is a major pharmaceutical manufacturer based in New York City. In 2003, the company came under investigation when a young boy, Joe Blaine, killed two of his classmates while under the influence of one of their drugs, Aptril, which, it was later discovered, had been sent unsolicited to his mother as part of a direct marketing campaign. With the help of one of the sales reps, Cabot gets the evidence she needs and has the CEO arrested. (SVU: "Manic")
In 2007, a Tauscher-Leto Pharmaseutical rep, Maura Truex, was murdered because of her drug supply. Her daughter's boyfriend, Ryan, stole drugs from her sample kit, took several of them, and then demanded that she give him better drugs. (SVU: "Dependent")
In 2008, the company was a victim of thefts by the trangendered-rights group Children of Ariel, who stole thousands of dollars' worth of estrogen and testosterone manufactured by Tauscher-Leto, as well as a hormone blocker, Leuprolide. The stolen goods were later found in the possession of 13-year-old Hailey Van Kuren, but she escaped prosecution when Ariel leader Blake took responsibility for the theft. (SVU: "Transitions")
