In re Lipitor Antitrust Litigation, MDL No. 2332 (D.N.J.)

We represent direct purchasers of the brand name drug Lipitor who were prevented from substituting less expensive generic versions of Lipitor for their purchases of the expensive brand name drug because of Defendants’ scheme to monopolize the market. This scheme involved several alleged illegal acts, including (1) committing fraud in order to secure a patent on Lipitor (known as “Walker Process” fraud); and (2) the branded drug manufacturer making a large payment to a generic competitor in order to induce the generic to delay entering the market (known as a “reverse payment”).

The district court dismissed Plaintiffs’ allegations. Plaintiffs have appealed that ruling. The appeal is currently pending.
