We represent the States of Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Utah in a series of cases against pharmaceutical companies, known as the AWP litigation. Each of these states alleges that pharmaceutical companies’ falsified pricing information which caused State Medicaid agencies to grossly overpay for prescription drugs. The drug manufacturers’ false and inflated Average Wholesale Prices (AWPs) caused pharmacies to shop for drugs offering the highest reimbursement from the states. In turn, the inflated AWPs provided higher sales revenue, volume, and market share for the drug companies. This resulted in dramatically steeper costs for the states. Thus far, we have tried cases in the States of Alabama and Mississippi and juries have returned verdicts in cases for each state. We have also settled with many drug companies in all eight states. This litigation is ongoing.
