Settlement Structure: 
Case Summary: 

Sanofi has agreed to settle a class action alleging that it engaged in antitrust behavior, preventing competition and forcing customers to pay higher prices than necessary for its Menactra vaccine. Novartis was launching a competitor vaccine, and the complaint alleges that Sanofi required health care providers to buy the vaccine from it or risk paying much higher prices on Sanofi’s other pediatric vaccines. According to the complaint, this allowed Sanofi to maintain its monopoly of the market for that vaccine and artificially inflated prices.
