As we have reported previously our firm represents the States of Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Utah in a series of cases against pharmaceutical companies. These States allege the drug companies’ falsified pricing information, charging Medicaid much higher rates for drugs than they charged retailers. After receiving favorable rulings in the State of Alabama and Hawaii, our firm in conjunction with The State of Mississippi recently tried a case against Sandoz Inc. Judge Thomas L. Zebert, with the assistance of Special Master Bobby Snead, will assimilate the evidence introduced at trial and the post trial briefings and issue a verdict. We expect the Court to rule in late June to early July.
The States of Alabama, Alaska, Kansas and Mississippi are preparing for trials in late 2011 and early 2012. Our firm will proceed with trial settings against various pharmaceutical defendants. To date, our firm has recovered over $350 million for the various states with many of the cases against other Defendants remaining to be tried.
Recently the State of Louisiana, through its Attorney General James D. “Buddy” Caldwell, hired our law firm along with several Louisiana law firms to assist his office with the newly filed AWP suit against 108 drug manufacturers in the Parish of East Baton Rouge.
These AWP cases are being handled by a team of lawyers from our firm. Dee Miles (Dee.Miles@BeasleyAllen.com), Bill Hopkins (Bill.Hopkins@BeasleyAllen.com), Roman Shaul (Roman.Shaul@BeasleyAllen.com), Clay Barnett, (Clay.Barnett@BeasleyAllen.com), Chad Stewart (Chad.Stewart@BeasleyAllen.com) and Alison Douillard ( Alison.Douillard@BeasleyAllen.com), all lawyers in the Section, will handle these cases.
