Attorney General Dustin McDaniel will ask Arkansas Supreme Court to reconsider Risperdal ruling

Posted By on Thu, Apr 3, 2014 at 11:14 PM

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel said today he will file a petition asking the Arkansas Supreme Court to reconsider its recent ruling reversing a judgment of more than $1 billion against Johnson & Johnson regarding the marketing of the anti-psychotic drug Risperdalthe AP reports

In 2012, in a major victory for McDaniel at the time, the state was awarded $1.2 billion after the company was found to have misled doctors and patients about dangerous side effects of the drug. The money was slated to go into a trust fund for the private option. However, in March, the Supreme Court reversed the verdict, eliminating the windfall for the state.  

By the way, according to trial testimony, J & J accrued nearly $30 billion in net profits on Risperdal between 1994 and 2010.
