This lawsuit was over the price of Aggrenox and whether or not its manufacturer, Boehringer Ingelheim, delayed the availability of an allegedly less-expensive generic version through alleged anticompetitive agreements with Barr. The plaintiffs alleged that Boehringer Ingelheim and Barr did so through unlawful settlement of patent lawsuits in which the patents covering Aggrenox were in dispute.

Plaintiffs claim that Defendants’ actions denied Indirect Purchasers who paid for Aggrenox the benefits of competition and caused them to pay higher prices for Aggrenox than they otherwise would have paid.
