The state of Utah has settled its lawsuit against Eli Lilly for $24 million. The settlement was based on the pharmaceutical giant’s off-label marketing of Zyprexa, which as you know is an anti-psychotic drug. Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff made the announcement on November 11th, pointing out that “the victims were those who could least afford health care.” The settlement money comes at an opportune time for Utah. In January, state lawmakers will have to deal with a potential $850 million shortfall.
