Pharmaceutical Cases

There are attorneys for medical device and pharmaceutical litigation. Lawyers protect and get money for individuals who were injured by either medical devices or defective medications.

Litigating against large companies can be time-consuming, complex and expensive. Be sure that your attorney has a long, successful track record in such cases, and has the expertise and resources need to appropriately evaluate and successfully pursue such claims.

Associated press Breaking Legal News: Jury: 2 drug firms owe Ala. $114M in price fraud

By BOB JOHNSON – July 1, 2008

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A state court jury on Tuesday found two major pharmaceutical companies defrauded Alabama in a long-running Medicaid drug pricing scheme and ordered the firms to pay more than $114 million in damages.

The jury found that GlaxoSmithKline should pay the state $80.8 million in compensatory damages and that Novartis should pay about $33.7 million in similar damages. But it declined to order any punitive damages.

An attorney representing the state, Jere Beasley of Montgomery, said the verdict should help Alabama and other states settle similar lawsuits with drug companies.

Overall, the state had asked for as much as $800 million in total damages in what its attorneys claimed was a scheme to overcharge for Medicaid prescription drugs from 1991 to 2005.

The jury awarded the amount of compensatory damages Beasley had asked for in closing arguments.

"I think the jury looked at the evidence and decided the fraud was substantial but that the compensatory damages plus interest was enough," Beasley said.
