Allergan USA, Inc. Key Developments

Consumer's Class Action Alleging Allergan USA Inc., Allergan Inc. and Allergan Sales L.L.C. Overfills Dispensers Dismissed

The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri held the manufacturers of Restasis eye drops were entitled to the dismissal of a consumer's class action alleging the manufacturers overcharged for the eye drops. The consumer failed to state a claim under Missouri law. Alternatively, the consumer's claims were preempted by federal law. Restasis was a prescription ophthalmic medication manufactured and sold by Allergan USA Inc., Allergan Inc. and Allergan Sales L.L.C. in vials. Each vial of Restasis contained approximately 14 drops of medicine, while the recommended dosage for Restasis was one drop twice a day. Thompson alleged violation of the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act (MMPA). She also alleged the defendants were unjustly enriched by their practice of overfilling Restasis dispensers and received money from "deceptive and unfair practices." The defendants moved to dismiss for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted and, alternatively, on federal preemption grounds. The district court granted the defendants' motion. Thompson's allegation that including smaller quantities of medication in the Restasis vials would make it less expensive to consumers was without sufficient logical or factual foundation. She therefore failed to meet the ascertainable loss requirement for stating a claim under the MMPA. Similarly, her claims for unjust enrichment and money had and received also failed. The district court also found that reducing the amount of medicine in each Restasis vial was a major change requiring prior Food and Drug Administration approval.
