Risperdal Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Mounting Claims Involving Risperdal Gynecomastia Allegations in Pennsylvania Litigation
Date:11/13/2013

ies will pay $2.2 billion to settle a government probe into the marketing of some of their drugs, including Risperdal. According to a press release issued by the Justice Department, the settlement includes $4.85 million in criminal fines, and $1.72 billion in civil penalties. Among other things, the agreement resolves charges that Johnson & Johnson misbranded Risperdal and promoted off-label use of the drug for children, elderly nursing home patients, and those with mental disabilities.

Court records indicate that in October 2012, Johnson & Johnson and Janssen agreed to settle five claims involving Risperdal and gynecomastia that had been filed in the Pennsylvania litigation. Among other things, the lawsuits alleged that the companies knew use of the drug could lead to male breast development, and that its sales reps were trained to downplay this potential Risperdal side effect. The Plaintiffs also alleged that Risperdal was illegally marketed for use in children.***

Alleged victims of Risperdal and male breast growth may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. Learn More about Risperdal and gynecomastia at Bernstein Liebhard LLP’s website. For a free case review, please contact the Firm by calling 800-511-5092.
