Judge Enters Formal Order on AstraZeneca
The federal district court in Boston entered a formal order on February 22, 2011 giving final approval to the $103 million settlement between two of the classes in the AWP litigation and pharmaceutical manufacturer AstraZeneca. Judge Saris’ order reaffirmed the comments she made in open Court on February 8, 2011.
Two more settlements are now left for consideration to wind up 10 years of hard-fought litigation. One of the settlements is with Bristol Meyers Squibb and the other with the Track Two defendants. To read more about the AWP litigation, in which Wexler Wallace is co-lead counsel, click here.
