South African Tribunal Asks For Damages Estimates in GSK AIDS Drug Case

A landmark South African legal complaint against British drug maker GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) over its AIDS drug pricing and policies in that country will proceed following an order late last week by South Africa's Competition Tribunal that will allow the complaint to go forward. GSK has sought outright dismissal of the case; however, the Competition Tribunal issued an order last week giving the complainants, AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) and several South African AIDS advocates, 10 days to present further evidence & arguments regarding the damages they claim to have sustained as a result of what they claim are GSK's illegal drug pricing and policies. The order also states that the parties will come back in late April or the first week of May 2005 to present oral arguments on these issues.
