44 states are suing Teva Pharmaceuticals, accusing the company of collaborating with nineteen others to drive up drug prices.
According to the complaint, those prices would sometimes be inflated by more than 1000%.
And, in some cases, those companies would allegedly work together to avoid competing and prevent prices from going up or down.
Specifically, 86 medicines are alleged to have had their prices raised between mid-2013 and early 2015.
In a statement, Teva says it will fight the lawsuit, saying the assertions are only allegations.
The lawsuit is seeking damages, penalties, and actions to restore competition.
