National Forum on Pharmaceutical Pricing Litigation
ACI introduces its National Forum on Pharmaceutical Pricing Litigation led by expert counsel and state and federal government attorneys
“Despite the fact that the pricing MDL is in the process of winding down, there is still a considerable amount of action right now in the drug pricing litigation arena: big settlements, jury verdicts, and overturned decisions come at the same time as new cases being filed,” said Leigh Leventhal, Director of Legal Programs at ACI. “The stakes in drug pricing cases are increasing each year, and the old tried and true standard pricing methodology of AWP is waning. We are thrilled to have confirmed the participation of 3 Assistant US Attorneys and 2 State Medicaid Fraud Division attorneys, who will discuss critical elements of pricing litigation handled by state-appointed private outside counsel, including identifying steps to take at the inception of a case to deal with private plaintiff’s counsel, understanding different states’ statutes for appointing power, and knowing what the federal government must do even when not directly involved in a pricing case.”
Government participants confirmed to speak at this event include Eric Gill, Assistant US Attorney, Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Paul Kaufman, Assistant US Attorney, Eastern District of New York, Cynthia O’Keeffe, Deputy Chief, Civil Medicaid Fraud Division, Texas Office of the Attorney General, Gregg Shaprio, Assistant US Attorney, District of Massachusetts, and Jay Shue, Deputy Attorney General, Director Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, Arkansas Office of the Attorney General.
