Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP and co-counsel Berger & Montague,P.C. announced that they have reached a settlement in three separate but related whistleblower lawsuits alleging violations of the False Claims Act against AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals LP, Cephalon, Inc., and Biogen Inc., for a total of $55.5 million. The cases were jointly prosecuted by Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP and Berger & Montague, P.C. on behalf of Relator Ronald J. Streck, who filed this action in 2008. Under the terms of the settlement, AstraZeneca will pay $46.5 million, Cephalon will pay $7.5 million, and Biogen will pay $1.5 million. Claims against a fourth drug manufacturer, Genzyme Corporation, are still being litigated. The case, pending in federal court in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, is captioned United States ex rel. Ronald Streck versus Allergan, et al., Case No. 08-cv-5135. The lawsuit, filed on behalf of the United States under the False Claims Act (FCA) and State False Claims Acts alleges that a number of pharmaceutical manufacturers, including AstraZeneca, Cephalon and Biogen, fraudulently underpaid mandatory rebates to state Medicaid programs. Streck's lead attorney, T. Talyana Bromberg of Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, stated: "When pharmaceutical companies manipulate prices in order to underpay Medicaid, every taxpayer suffers.

The Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Affirms Dismissal of a Relator's False Claims Act Suit Against Bristol-Meyers Squib Co., E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Co., DuPont Pharmaceuticals Co., AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals L.P. and AstraZeneca L.P

The Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the dismissal of a relator's False Claims Act (FCA) suit against pharmaceutical companies, agreeing with a district court that the relator failed to show he was the original source of information about the companies' alleged wrongdoing. Karl Schumann, proceeding as a qui tam relator under the FCA and corresponding state laws, brought an action against Bristol-Meyers Squib Co., E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Co., DuPont Pharmaceuticals Co., AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals L.P. and AstraZeneca L.P. (collectively, the defendants). Schumann alleged the defendants improperly induced Medco Health Solutions Inc., his employer, to offer certain of the defendants' drugs in its mail-order pharmacies and in health plans it managed; did not include those inducements when calculating the best price for their drugs and thus submitted inaccurate best price reports to the government; overcharged the government based on those inaccurate best prices; and underpaid rebates owed based on those inaccurate best prices. The district court found it lacked subject matter jurisdiction over Schumann's claims because he did not have the requisite direct and independent knowledge to satisfy the original source exception to the FCA's public disclosure bar. As a result, the court dismissed Schumann's claims with prejudice. Schumann appealed. The Third Circuit affirmed the district court's judgment. In so ruling, the Third Circuit found Schumann's knowledge gained through the application of expertise to information publicly disclosed under 31 U.S.C. §3730(e)(4)(A) was not independent, and Schumann failed to aver facts indicating he had direct and independent knowledge of any false or fraudulent claim submitted or caused to be submitted by the defendants. Therefore, Schumann was not an original source of the information underlying his FCA claims against the defendants.
