In re Lidoderm Antitrust Litig., No. 14-2521 (N.D. Cal.)


In the Lidoderm case, Faruqi & Faruqi represents a pharmaceutical wholesaler and a proposed class of direct purchasers of Endo’s 5% lidocaine patch, Lidoderm.  The case alleges that Endo paid its would-be generic competitor, Watson (now known as Actavis) hundreds of millions of dollars to delay entering the market with less-expensive generic versions of Lidoderm for 13 months, forcing direct purchasers to pay higher branded prices rather than lower generic prices for 13 months longer than they otherwise would have.  Lidoderm had annual sales of over $1 billion during the relevant time, making the overcharge paid by direct purchasers quite substantial.  On May 21, 2014, Faruqi & Faruqi was appointed co-lead counsel by the Court. The case settled for $166 million in early 2018.
