Namenda Antitrust Litigation Settles For $750 Million

On October 28, 2019, the direct purchaser plaintiffs and Forest Laboratories (now Allergan) reached a settlement to end the “pay for delay” and “product hopping” antitrust case known as the In Re Namenda Direct Purchaser Antitrust Litigation, set to begin trial that same day.  The case resulted in a proposed settlement amounting to $750 million for the direct purchaser class.  The case is pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, before the Honorable Colleen McMahon.  The settlement agreement is still subject to finalization and court approval.  Faruqi & Faruqi, together with other firms, represents the direct purchasers in the litigation.
