Faruqi & Faruqi Settles Lidoderm Antitrust Litigation For $166 Million

March 23, 2018

Faruqi & Faruqi’s Peter Kohn was at the helm for direct purchasers during the lengthy and complex “pay for delay” antitrust case known as the Lidoderm Antitrust Litigation, pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.  The case resulted in a proposed settlement amounting to $166 million for the direct purchaser class, and generated several scholarly decisions by the Honorable William H. Orrick, III, including on the issue of attorney-client privilege waivers, class certification, and summary judgment in a “pay for delay” case.  The settlement is yet another success for the Faruqi firm, who are on the forefront of pharmaceutical antitrust enforcement, and who were years ahead of the United States Federal Trade Commission in investigating, bringing suit, and obtaining monetary relief over the Lidoderm “pay for delay” deal.
