If You Paid For Solodyn®, A Class Action Lawsuit May Affect Your Rights
NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – You may be affected by a class action lawsuit against Medicis Pharmaceutical Corp., and Impax Laboratories, (“Defendants”). The lawsuit claims that Defendants unlawfully delayed the availability of allegedly less-expensive generic versions of Solodyn and that Defendants’ conduct caused certain consumers and third-party payors (discussed below) to pay too much for Solodyn in these states and territories. Defendants deny any wrongdoing.
ARE YOU AFFECTED?

Purchases made directly from Defendants, for resale purposes, for fixed dollar co-payments that do not vary between brand and generic drug, through Medicaid, or consumers who purchased Solodyn prior to July 23, 2009 are not included.
