Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)'s Gorsky Should Be Forced to Testify in Resperdal Suit, US Says



4/16/2012 7:48:06 AM

Johnson & Johnson’s recently named Chief Executive Officer Alex Gorsky should be ordered to give sworn testimony in a lawsuit claiming the company paid kickbacks to influence sales of the antipsychotic drug Risperdal to nursing home patients, government lawyers said.

The U.S. sued J&J and two units in January 2010, claiming they paid millions of dollars to induce Omnicare Inc. (OCR) (OCR) to buy and recommend J&J drugs including Risperdal. Justice Department lawyers asked U.S. District Judge Richard Stearns in Boston to compel Gorsky to appear for a deposition for the suit.
