J&J to Pay $2.2B to Settle Allegations Over Its Marketing of Risperdal; Parker Waichman LLP Applauds Efforts of Whistleblowers in Helping Compel Resolution
Date:11/5/2013

whistleblowers in the District of Massachusetts (U.S. v. Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Case No: 1:07-cv-10288-RGS, U.S. District Court, District Of Massachusetts), $27.7 million; and whistleblower in the Northern District of California (U.S. v. Scios Inc., Case No: CR-11-0461-CRB, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California (San Francisco)), $28 million. (See related court documents here.)

“J&J and Janssen have settled allegations that basically claim the companies were not only pick-pocketing U.S. taxpayers, but that they were also putting at risk the most vulnerable members of our society: the young, the elderly and the disabled,” said Parker Waichman LLP.

Victoria Starr, a former Janssen sales representative, is one whistleblower involved in the settlement, Bloomberg reported, adding that her lawsuit was centered on alleged orders from her company to convince doctors to prescribe Risperdal for children with mental-health problems, an unapproved use at the time.

Also named in the Bloomberg report was whistleblower Bernard Lisitza, a former pharmacist for Omnicare who alleged he was fired after complaining about his employer’s switching patients’ prescriptions to J&J drugs.

In recent years many pharmaceutical employees have come forward to report fraudulent billing, illegal marketing techniques and undisclosed drug side effects. These whistleblowers have helped the federal government recover billions of dollars obtained illegally by pharmaceutical and medical device companies. Whistleblowers also save the lives of countless prescription drug and medical device users who were previously unaware of the side effects of their device or prescription.

Anyone who possesses proof that a pharmaceutical or medical device company has engaged in some form of fraudulent activity against the federal government is encouraged
