PHILADELPHIA, March 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Berger &
Montague, P.C. has filed a class action lawsuit in the United
States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, Rieke, et al.
v. Monaco Coach Corporation, Civil Action No. 09-50444-KJC,...
On July 16, 2010, the Honorable Richard Stearns ruled that Plaintiff Carpenter's allegations of violations of the federal False Claims Act, 32 U.S.C. Section 3729(a)(1) arising from Abbott's alleged promotion of its AIDS drug Kaletra, for uses unapproved by the F.D.A., could proceed. Specifically, Plaintiff alleges that contrary to the F.D.A. approved uses and dosing for the drug, Abbott 1) promoted once daily dosing for therapy-experienced AIDS patients although such dosing was only approved for AIDS patients new to drug therapy and 2) promoted Kaletra as a single treatment regimen (monotherapy) rather than for use in combination with other anti-AIDS drugs. Simultaneously, the Court dismissed Plaintiff Carpenter's false claims allegations arising from alleged violations of the federal anti-kickback statute and Section (a)(2) of the False Claims Act. Discovery will now proceed in the case.

Berger & Montague, P.C., on behalf of cardholder classes, has reached tentative settlements with four credit card companies in a four-year-old lawsuit accusing six major credit card banks, and one arbitration provider, of unlawfully colluding to require cardholders to arbitrate disputes, including debt collections, and to preclude cardholders from participating in any class actions. The settling card companies are Chase, Bank of America, Capital One and HSBC. All settlements are subject to court approval. The lawsuit remains pending against Citibank, Discover and the National Arbitration Forum in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, as Ross, et al. v. Bank of America, N.A., et al., No. 05-cv-7116 and is a part of In re Currency Conversation Fee Antitrust Litigation, MDL No. 1409, in the same court.
