Case Summary: 

The final two defendants in a class action have agreed to settle a class action alleging that a group of companies engaged in anti-competitive behavior. The complaint alleges that Medicis Pharmaceutical Corp.(“Medicis”), Impax Laboratories, Inc., Lupin Limited, Lupin Pharmaceuticals Inc., and Sandoz Inc. unlawfully settled patent lawsuits covering the drug Solodyn. The result of this was a delay in the availability of generic equivalents, causing consumers to pay more for treatment. Previously, Lupin Limited, Lupin Pharmaceuticals Inc., and Sandoz Inc. settled; now Medicis and Impax are settling.
