A judge in Montgomery has upheld the fraud verdict Alabama won against AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals. But he trimmed the damages judgment from $215 million to $160 million.

A jury found the company committed fraud in overcharging for prescription drugs in the state’s Medicaid program.

The jury ordered the company to pay $40 million in compensatory damages and $175 million in punitive damages. But the judge said the punitive damages could be no more than $120 million under Alabama law.

Wonderful to work with

Beasley Allen did a great job with my case. They were wonderful to work with. They were available by phone when I needed them, treated me with the utmost respect and worked hard on my behalf. If a need arises in the future, I would definitely call on them again.
