On May 22, 2009, Alabama’s Attorney General Troy King announced an additional $89 million in settlements in ongoing litigation against a total of 72 pharmaceutical companies accused of defrauding the state’s Medicaid system by overcharging for drugs. Beasley Allen is representing the state in the Average Wholesale Price (AWP) litigation, and has already secured settlements totaling $34.75 million and jury verdicts of more than $352.4 million against pharmaceutical manufacturer defendants. The latest round of settlements resolves Alabama’s Medicaid fraud cases against six defendants comprised of groups of drug manufacturers, including Abbott Laboratories, Inc.; Aventis Pharmaceutical L.P., Aventis Behring L.L.C., ZLB Behring L.L.C. and Sanofi-Synthelabo, Inc.; TEVA Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc., IVAX Corporation, IVAX Pharmaceuticals Inc., and Barr Laboratories, Inc.; Shering-Plough/Warrick Companies; Forest Laboratories Inc. and Forest Pharmaceuticals Inc.; and Baxter International Inc. and Baxter Healthcare Corporation.

A positive manner

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
