Mar 18, 2019

UFCW Local 1500 Welfare Fund, a grocery union, files class action against AbbVie, Amgen, Samsung Bioepis, Mylan, Sandoz, Fresenius Kabi, Pfizer and Momenta, alleging misconduct and antitrust violations. The union alleges that the hundreds of patents which protect Humira® and settlements reached which the other seven companies have resulted in a monopoly which has prevented any competition. The class action includes persons or entities who have purchased or paid for Humira® since January 1, 2017.
