PIERRE, S.D. – Attorney General Marty Jackley is reminding consumers who feel they may be entitled to a recovery under the Provigil settlement to file their claim before the April 13, 2017 deadline.
In August 2016, Attorney General Jackley joined a multistate settlement with Cephalon and affiliated companies (“Cephalon”) for their anticompetitive conduct to protect the monopoly profits it earned from its landmark wakefulness drug, Provigil. That conduct delayed generic versions of Provigil from entering the market for several years. It was estimated $189,528.66 was available for distribution to South Dakota consumers for payments for Provigil.
Consumers who purchased Provigil or the generic equivalent between June 24, 2006 and March 31, 2012 may qualify. Consumers who feel they have a claim can either call 1-877-236-1413 or use the web page at http://www.stateagprovigilsettlement.com to file their claim directly with the company.
