States Increasingly Filing Suit Over Drug Marketing Practices

The Wall Street Journal reports that the attorneys general of several states are aggressively pursuing cases based on allegations of deceptive marketing against pharmaceutical giants such as Bristol-Myers Squibb, GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi SA. For example, in February, the AGs in Kentucky and Maryland filed lawsuits against GSK in their state courts, alleging the company deceptively marketed the diabetes treatment, Avandia (rosiglitazone), by downplaying the fact that the drug has been linked to an increased risk for heart attacks and strokes. At present, at least five other state AGs, who opted out of the $90-million settlement GSK agreed to pay in 2012 to resolve claims made by 37 other states and the District of Columbia, are pursuing similar lawsuits over Avandia.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
