July 27, 2010
Murphy Anderson’s Ann Lugbill was interviewed by WKYC TV (Cleveland/Akron, OH) in an investigative report on drug makers paying physicians who prescribe their drugs. Ann represented one of several employees who blew the whistle on Pfizer, the largest drug maker in the world, resulting in a $2 billion settlement to resolve allegations of kickbacks and improper off-label marketing of drugs. The WKYC investigation found that in Ohio, drug companies paid 645 physicians nearly $7 million in all or part of 2009.
