Beshear Files Claim Against Drug Manufacturers for alleged Price Gouging | SurfKY News

FRANKFORT, Ky. (5/13/19) — Attorney General Andy Beshear filed two lawsuits seeking to recover ill-gotten gains from 23 drug manufacturers that skyrocketed the prices of more than 100 prescription drugs including those used to treat diabetes, epilepsy and cancer.

In Franklin Circuit Court, Beshear filed suit against three of the largest insulin manufacturers, Eli Lilly, Sanofi-Aventis and Novo Nordisk, for driving up insulin prices, according to a Kentucky Attorney General’s Office press released. In addition, Beshear joined 43 attorneys general in a federal lawsuit targeting Teva Pharmaceuticals, plus 19 other drug manufacturers and 15 senior executives for inflating generic drug prices.

In both cases, Beshear is demanding the companies, which have made billions of dollars from schemes that inflated the prices of drugs Kentucky families rely on to live and treat diseases, correct their exploitative conduct, discharge their ill-gotten gains and pay civil penalties to the state.
