Louisiana AG Buddy Caldwell Files Suit Against GlaxoSmithKline

Baton Rouge–Attorney General Buddy Caldwell filed a lawsuit, on behalf of the state of Louisiana, against British health care giant GlaxoSmithKline LLC (GSK) over its illegal promotion of the drugs Paxil, Wellbutrin, Advair, Lamictal, Zofran, Imitrex, Lotronex, Flovent and Valtrex for off-label, non-covered uses in violation of state laws. The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Baton Rouge, has been assigned to Judge Janice Clark of the 19th Judicial District Court.

“GSK’s egregious conduct and greed caused fraudulent claims to be submitted to the Louisiana Medicaid Program,” said Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell. “As Attorney General, I will aggressively pursue and expose pharmaceutical companies who defraud our state and its citizens.”
