July 11, 2022 – Judge Daniel D. Crabtree has granted final approval to the $264 million settlement between Plaintiffs and the Mylan Defendants in In re: EpiPen Marketing, Sales Practices and Antitrust Litigation, MDL No. 2785, finding the settlement to be fair, reasonable, and adequate. The settlement resolves class claims that Mylan, together with the Pfizer Defendants, engaged in anticompetitive behavior that resulted in huge increases in the price of auto-injectable EpiPen devices, which are used to treat life-threatening allergic reactions.
Plaintiffs previously settled with Pfizer for $345 million. Together, the settlements with Mylan and Pfizer amount to a total recovery of $609 million for the class. Class members who submitted a claim pursuant to the Pfizer settlement are automatically eligible to receive a payment from the Mylan settlement.
Pritzker Levine partner Elizabeth C. Pritzker serves as Co-Lead Class Counsel in the case, which is proceeding in the United States District Court for the District of Kansas. In his order granting final approval, Judge Crabtree praised Co-Lead Counsel for obtaining “substantial relief” for the class and for performing “exceptional legal work” with “skill and zeal.”
