State of Florida, et al. v. Abbott Laboratories et al., Del. District Court 1:08-CV-00155 (filed March 18, 2008).

A group of eighteen states and the District of Columbia filed a complaint in Delaware District Court against Abbot Laboratories, Fournier Industrie et Sante and Laboratoires Fournier S.A. under the Sherman Act, alleging an unlawful monopolization of the fenofibrate market.  Defendants allegedly feared that competition from generic manufacturers would reduce profits from their TriCor product, a drug which regulates triglyceride and cholesterol levels.  The complaint can be viewed here.
