Lilly pleaded guilty to introducing misbranded drugs into interstate commerce. The company must pay a fine and forfeiture totaling $615 million.
Lilly agreed to the plea earlier this month and will pay about $800 million to resolve a civil case tied to the drug's marketing.
Prosecutors say Lilly sold Zyprexa to treat Alzheimer's-related dementia and depression, among other unapproved uses.
This from the Eli Lilly website:
Since its founding in 1876, Eli Lilly and Company has been rooted in a culture that values honesty, hard work, and caring for our community.
Nice to see that the term 'misdemeanors' now means honesty, hard work and caring for the community.
