Teva is part of a massive company, Israeli-based Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, with deep pockets. Teva Pharmaceutical, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of generic drugs.
I live here in Vegas where this lawsuit happened and I didn't agree with it AT ALL! It is NOT the drug companies fault that the center used the vials more than once. In all reality, it would be OK to use them multiple times as long as a fresh sterile needle was used each time. This endoscopy center was reusing needles which is how several people came down with Hep C. Sue the Dr, staff and the center, but it was not the drug companies fault.
If you want to sue them for something, go after them for blocking treatments and drugs that are more natural, but would not make them any money.
