Manhattan AG sues Novartis (NVS) for offering pharmacies kickbacks to move patients to a Novartis drug used to prevent rejection of kidney transplants. "Novartis caused the public to pay tens of millions of dollars for kickback-tainted drugs that were dispensed by pharmacists who were in cahoots with the company. Novartis, as we allege, is a repeat offender, having settled healthcare fraud charges based on kickbacks less than three years ago," AG says. NVS -0.4% AH. (PR)
