Vermont to get $500,000 in suit against drug maker

first_imgAttorney General William H Sorrell announced today that Vermont has joined with other states and the federal government and reached an agreement in principle with AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals LP, to settle allegations it engaged in an off-label marketing campaign that improperly promoted the antipsychotic drug, Seroquel. AstraZeneca will pay the states and the federal government a total of $520 million in damages and penalties to compensate Medicaid and various federal healthcare programs for harm suffered as a result of this conduct. Vermont s federal and state share of the settlement is approximately a half million dollars.Since Vermont s Medicaid program is paid with both state and federal dollars, the Medicaid program will receive a check for approximately $200,000 after the federal share is deducted. Attorney General William Sorrell hailed the settlement as “a significant victory for Vermont and its consumers.” The improper marketing practices in this case were particularly egregious given the fact that the unapproved uses of these powerful medications were often targeted at our most vulnerable citizens.Seroquel is one of a newer generation of antipsychotic medications (called atypical antipsychotics) used to treat certain psychological disorders. From January 1, 2001 through December 31, 2006, AstraZeneca promoted the sale and use of Seroquel for certain uses that the Food and Drug Administration had not approved. The settlement resolves a government investigation into promotional activities undertaken by AstraZeneca that were directed not only to psychiatrists but also to primary care physicians and other health care professionals for unapproved uses in the treatment of medical conditions such as aggression, Alzheimer s disorder, anger management, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, dementia and sleeplessness.In implementing its marketing campaign, AstraZeneca was also alleged to have made illegal payments to physicians, paying their way to travel to resort locations to advise AstraZeneca about marketing messages for unapproved uses, to serve as authors of articles written by AstraZeneca and its agents, and to conduct studies for unapproved uses of Seroquel. The settlement resolves claims that, as a result of these promotional activities, AstraZeneca caused physicians to prescribe Seroquel for children, adolescents and dementia patients in long term care facilities, which are uses that were not medically accepted indications for which state Medicaid programs would approve reimbursement.As part of the settlement, AstraZeneca will enter into a Corporate Integrity Agreement with the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Inspector General, which will closely monitor the company s future marketing and sales practices.This settlement is based on qui tam cases that were filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania by relators private parties who filed actions under state and federal false claims statutes.A National Association of Medicaid Fraud Control Units team participated in the investigation and conducted the settlement negotiations with AstraZeneca on behalf of the settling states. Team members included representatives from New York, Massachusetts, Illinois, Ohio, New Jersey, Texas and California.Source: Vermont AG. 5.5.2010last_img read more

An opportunity in CUs’ sweet spot

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The mortgage market has moved right into credit unions’ sweet spot, according to one expert, who adds that if CUs are to capitalize on the shift they must begin offering new solutions.To do just that, CU Direct has now officially introduced a new platform, Origence, aimed at helping credit unions not just capture mortgage loans, but do so in a market in which a number of name brand lenders have given the impression a home loan can be had in a matter of minutes.Roger Hull, chief product officer at CU Direct, noted big banks have traditionally dominated the refinance market, which has been slowing, while credit unions have typically done better with first mortgage loans, which have been increasing.“Credit unions have about an 8% share of the overall first mortgage market today, and that percentage has grown slightly over the last few years,” explained Hull. “That’s what you’d expect as we shift away from a predominately refi market to more of a purchase market. And while credit unions have always done better in a purchase market, quite frankly they could have a much bigger market share—but there are some things they need to offer to get that.” continue reading »last_img read more

Sweden’s AP1 steps down as lead plaintiff in dark pools lawsuit

first_imgThe lawsuit – dubbed the “‘Flash Boys’ case”, after a best-selling book that exposed the practices of high-frequency traders (HFTs) – revolves around so-called “dark pools”, a trading venue where investors can trade stocks almost anonymously, preventing large block orders from influencing the market.Within a dark pool, investors do not have to contemporaneously reveal their buy or sell orders to others.The orders are therefore less likely to be picked off by HFTs looking to beat investors slower to react to new information.However, the lawsuit alleges Barclays not only allowed HFTs to trade in its own dark pool (Barclays LX) but encouraged them with unfair perquisites over other traders.The plaintiffs said the presence of so many predators within the pool meant institutional investors trading there suffered harm because share prices were influenced to their detriment.Meanwhile, Barclays’s marketing literature was claiming that very little of the trading within the dark pool was “aggressive”, when in fact, by May 2014, this kind of trading made up more than 30% of the activity, according to Barclays’s own analysis quoted in the court papers.The plaintiffs accused Barclays of deceit by concealment, unfair competition and false advertising.Furthermore, they claimed the exchanges rigged their markets in favour of the HFT firms, by offering products which shave infinitesimal fractions of a second off the time it takes to receive and respond to information from the exchanges.AP1 estimates it lost around SEK275m (€29.4m) over five years.However, the judge found the exchanges to be immune from the lawsuit, saying: “The SEC [which regulates the exchanges] has ample authority and ability to … address any improprieties by the exchanges.”He also said the plaintiffs failed to adequately plead that Barclays committed any manipulative acts, “and their claims do not allege reasonable reliance [on Barclays’s statements]”.An appeal has been lodged, but AP1 has now said it will step down as lead plaintiff if the appeal is heard in the courts, although it will remain as a passive member of the class if a court certifies it.Ossian Ekdahl, head of communication and ESG at AP1, said the main reason was the management time that would have to be spent on the case.“Up until now,” he said, “we have not spent too much time on the case, but if we take it further, the amount of time needed will be significant.”But he said no monetary considerations were involved, as AP1’s lawyers are paid on a no-win, no-fee basis.Ekdahl added that, besides recovery of presumed losses, AP1’s involvement in the lawsuit was also motivated by a desire to uphold fair trading standards for all market participants.“All institutions and individuals who have purchased US equities have suffered losses because of the actions taken by the firms,” he said.“Because AP1 is a major player in many of the world’s stock exchanges, it is important for us to promote exchange trading functions in a beneficial and fair way, so that no players can enrich themselves at the expense of others.” Swedish buffer fund AP1 has stepped down as lead plaintiff in a US class action against 40 securities brokers, high-frequency traders and exchanges, in view of a possible appeal, after a New York judge dismissed the case.Jesse Furman, US district judge, Southern District of New York, said the lawsuit, which was consolidated from five separate cases, was primarily a matter for the financial market regulators.Other lead plaintiffs include the City of Providence Rhode Island, and the Plumbers and Pipefitters National Pension Fund.Defendants include Barclays Capital, the New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq and Bats Global Markets.last_img read more
