$74 Million Settlement Reached Regarding Pricing of Cipro
Date:9/3/2013

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being released by the law firms of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP, Zwerling, Schachter & Zwerling, LLP, the Joseph Saveri Law Firm, Inc., and Krause, Kalfayan Benink & Slavens, LLP.

A partial settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit involving the prescription antibiotic Cipro.  The lawsuit claims Bayer Corporation, Barr Laboratories, Inc., Hoechst Marion Roussel, Inc., Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and The Rugby Group, Inc. violated antitrust and consumer protection laws by agreeing not to compete with each other, and by keeping lower-cost generic versions of Cipro off the market.  The manufacturers deny these claims.

This settlement is with Bayer Corporation only; the case against the other manufacturers continues.

Neither the case nor the settlement is about the safety or effectiveness of Cipro.

Bayer has paid $74 million into a settlement fund that will compensate consumers and third-party payors (Class Members) who paid or reimbursed for Cipro in California between January 8, 1997 and October 31, 2004.  Cipro purchasers not eligible for settlement payments include: (1) anyone who received Cipro through the MediCal Prescription Drug Program, (2) anyone who purchased Cipro to resell it, (3) government entities, (4) the manufacturers and related entities being sued, and (5) all purchasers of Cipro who paid a flat co-payment and who would have paid the same co-payment for a generic version under their health insurance policy.

Individual payments will be based on the total number of valid claims filed and how much the Class Member paid or reimbursed for Cipro.  Attorneys' fees not to exceed one-third of the fund, litigation costs, and other fees and expenses will be deducted prior to distribution.  Full details about the settlement can be found in the
