Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. has agreed to pay $84 million to settle a long-running class action lawsuit over changes the company made to annuities it sold before 1985. About 4,000 current and 29,000 former annuity owners will be eligible to share in the settlement of this case. The proposed settlement must still obtain final approval from U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman.
Pfizer Inc. has agreed to pay $325 million to resolve claims it defrauded insurers and other healthcare benefit providers by marketing Neurontin for unapproved uses. In the decade old class action lawsuit, TBS client, ASEA/AFSCME Local 52 Health Benefits Trust (ASEA), alleged that Pfizer and Warner-Lambert Co. sold Neurontin in an effort to boost profits for uses for which Neurontin was neither approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration nor medically effective.
