GlaxoSmithKline Fined $5.8 Million for Deceptive Marketing in Kentucky

Franklin Circuit Judge Roger Crittenden has awarded Kentucky more than $5.8 million in civil penalties in its case against GlaxoSmithKline for deceptive or false marketing of drugs including the anti-nausea drugs Kytril and Zofran .

The award was announced by state Attorney General Jack Conway and was the second in two days against a major pharmaceutical company. On Wednesday, Conway announced that Crittenden had awarded $5.3 million in civil penalties against AstraZeneca for violating Kentucky’s Consumer Protection Act.

Mary Ann Rhyne, a spokeswoman for Glaxo, said the company "is disappointed because we believe the result is disproportionate to what the jury found, and we’re considering our options including an appeal."
