Class Action Lawsuit Settlement Case(s): Grair v. GlaxoSmithKline, Case No. BC 288536, Superior Court for the State of California, County of Los Angeles
Website of the Class Action Lawsuit Settlement Administrator (FILE YOUR CLAIM HERE): www.CAPaxilClassAction.com
Address to submit a claim form (REQUIRED):
Details: GlaxoSmithKline has proposed a class action lawsuit settlement to resolve allegations it falsely and deceptively advertised that its prescription antidepressant Paxil is non-addictive. If approved, the Paxil class action settlement will provide cash refunds to California residents who purchased Paxil between 1999 and 2003.
The Paxil settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit, Grair v. GlaxoSmithKline, alleging GlaxoSmithKline (“GSK”) falsely advertised and promoted Paxil as being non-habit forming or non-addictive, and that GSK’s advertisements and promotional materials failed to disclose the risk of symptoms users may experience if they stopped using Paxil.
GSK denies these allegations, but has offered to pay an $8.5 million class action lawsuit settlement to resolve the litigation.
Class Members of the Paxil class action lawsuit settlement include all California residents who were 18 years old or older and who paid for any portion of the price of Paxil while living in California from January 14, 1999 through January 1, 2003.
Class Members of the Paxil class action settlement who can provide Proof of Purchase can receive a full refund of the out-of-pocket expenses they paid for Paxil during the Class Period, provided the total amount of claims does not exceed $8.5 million.
Class Members without Proof of Purchase can still file a claim to receive up to $80 of out-of-pocket expenses, provided the total amount of these claims does not exceed $500,000.
Only out-of-pocket expenses incurred for Paxil will be refunded, including copayments and deductibles. For example, if you paid a $20 copay for a Paxil prescription, you would receive $20. You would not be entitled to receive the amount your insurance company or employer paid as part of your insurance plan.
To receive a refund from the Paxil class action settlement, you must submit a claim form and any supporting documents to the Paxil Settlement Administrator postmarked by October 10, 2012.
