What’s this settlement about?
The Lawsuit alleges that Defendants violated federal racketeering, state antitrust, and state consumer protection laws. Plaintiffs allege that, in 2007-2008, generic-drug-maker Ranbaxy wrongfully obtained from the FDA “tentative approval” for a series of first-to-file abbreviated new drug applications (“ANDAs”), including for generic versions of Nexium, Diovan, and Valcyte. Plaintiffs allege that Ranbaxy did so by misrepresenting both the manufacturing conditions of its plants (including one in Paonta Sahib, India) and the results of analyses conducted about the integrity of data generated at those plants. Plaintiffs also allege that those tentative approvals secured for Ranbaxy “180-day exclusivity” status, which enabled Ranbaxy to block other generics from gaining FDA approval until after Ranbaxy’s drugs entered the markets. Plaintiffs allege that had Ranbaxy not made misrepresentations to the FDA, the FDA would not have granted the tentative approvals and generic entry by one or more other companies would have occurred sooner than it did.

What is a class action lawsuit settlement?
For example, a class action lawsuit is one with multiple plaintiffs. In other words, there are more than one person being represented by the lawsuit. In other words, a plaintiff or plaintiffs file the case on behalf of many people who were affected by aren’t involved in the actual suit. For example, if you purchased an item that was later determined to be involved in a class action lawsuit, you may be entitled to compensation. If you’re included in the class or group of people affected, then you can file a claim to receive money, coupons or replacement products. But, each case is different, and each will specify who is included. In addition, class action lawsuits may require proof that you are part of the group of affected people. In this case, proof of purchase or other specified proof is needed. However, in some cases, no proof is required. In that case, you can file a claim without proving that you are part of the class of people affected. Of course, when you file a claim you are doing so under penalty of perjury. So, do not file if you do not qualify.
