Montclair lawyer Neil Mullin won a big settlement last week when Schering Plough agreed to pay three whistle blowers $31.7 million after they outed the NJ-based pharmaceutical company for overcharging Medicaid for the allergy drug Claritin.
The whistle blowers initially approached Mullin six years ago on a sexual-harrassment issue. After probing them, Mullin discovered the pricing scandal. The $31.7 is part of $345.5 million Schering paid to settle the case with the government. More on the story here.
