Pharmacy class plaintiffs seeking injunction to implement May Rx pricing suit settlement.
PHARMACY CLASS PLAINTIFFS TO SEEK TEMPORARY INJUNCTION AT APRIL 16 HEARING before Chicago federal court Judge Charles Kocoras. The retail pharmacy plaintiffs in the consolidated pharmaceutical pricing antitrust case are seeking a court order to implement the non-financial terms of a May 1996 settlement with 11 drug manufacturer defendants, which would require the manufacturers to offer similar rebates to all parties capable of similar influences on market share. The date of the hearing is still tentative; hearings set for April 3 and 10 were postponed because ongoing negotiations had delayed filing of a formal petition to the court.
