The online news website Truth in Media just finished a series of reports on Big Pharma. It’s a fascinating look at how the pharmaceutical industry has manipulated the system to increase sales and profits.
Part 4 of the series highlights the case of Endo pharmaceuticals and its orphan drug Lidoderm. The James Hoyer Law Firm represented whistleblower Peggy Ryan in the case against Endo. The False Claims Act suit ended with Endo paying $193-million to the government in a settlement for off-label marketing.
James Hoyer founding partner and former federal prosecutor Judy Hoyer was interviewed for the report.
