Montgomery County Circuit Judge Charles Price, who is presiding over the state of Alabama’s Medicaid fraud litigation, has ordered the State of Alabama and two drug manufacturers, Roxane Laboratories and Sandoz, into mediation in an effort to reach a settlement in the drug pricing lawsuits against those companies. Judge Price appointed retired Circuit Judge Claud Neilson to mediate the State’s lawsuits against the two drug manufacturers. The lawsuits are scheduled to go to trial on February 9th in Judge Price’s courtroom. The court’s order says all sides should make a good faith effort to reach an agreement.
Roxane and Sandoz are among the more than 70 companies the State has sued for overcharging the State’s Medicaid program. Thus far we have has won jury verdicts on behalf of the State against three of the companies and have reached settlements with seven other manufacturers. Hopefully, the mediation will be successful. If not, we will be ready for trial in February.
