Supplementary notes

* From settlements between the federal and state governments and pharmaceutical manufacturers.

An additional multi-state settlement, reached in 2016 with Teva’s Cephalon subsidiary for monopoly practices, involved a $125 million civil monetary fine. However, the entirety of this fine was paid from a previous (2015) $1.2 billion civil settlement payment by Teva’s Cephalon subsidiary to the federal government. Because this $1.2 billion federal financial penalty already was included in our database, we did not include the $125 million multi-state settlement payment so as not to count Teva’s settlement payment twice.
