VT Sues Multiple Drug Manufacturers

generic-drugsOn Wednesday, VT Attorney General Thomas J. Donovan, Jr. joined 39 other state attorneys general in a lawsuit against six generic drug makers. The six companies allegedly entered illegal conspiracies to reduce competition for generic drugs and raise the prices. The states contend the defendant drug companies coordinated with their competitors at events like industry trade shows, by email, phone and text messages, and violated state and federal antitrust laws and state consumer protection laws.

The lawsuit against drug makers Heritage Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Aurobinda Pharma USA, Inc., Citron Pharma, LLC, Mayne Pharma (USA), Inc., Mylan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. is pending in federal court in Connecticut.
