TAMPA — Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi announced that Florida and 36 other states reached a settlement with Janssen Pharmaceuticals for $181 million to settle deceptive marketing charges.
Bay News 9 reported that the settlement is the largest multi-state consumer protection settlement ever. Janssen agreed to the settlement after they allegedly promoted Risperdal to children and elderly patients, two demographics that were not approved by the FDA to be marketed to.
Florida will reportedly receive $11 million that will be used to enforce Risperdals proper marketing and cover legal fees of the litigation process.
When speaking on the settlement, Bondi explained, “This landmark settlement holds Janssen accountable for its actions and send a message to all pharmaceutical companies that these practices will not be tolerated.”
