Philadelphia Business Journal

Allergan Inc. allegedly paid kickbacks to induce doctors to write prescriptions for its eye-care drugs, according to a lawsuit unsealed Wednesday at U.S. District Court in Philadelphia.

The complaint was filed under the whistleblower provisions of the False Claims Act by Philadelphia law firm Pietragallo Gordon Alfano Bosick & Raspanti and the Chicago law firm Goldberg Kohn Ltd. on behalf of two Philadelphia-area ophthalmologists: Dr. Hebert Nevyas and Dr. Anita Nevyas-Wallace.

The lawsuit alleges that Allergan (NYSE: AGN) provided illegal inducements, including business consulting services, to eye-care professionals throughout the country, to get them to prescribe Allergan’s drugs such as Restasis for chronic dry eye disease. To read the complete article click here.
