Idaho Consumers Given Additional Time to Submit Claims Related to Provigil Settlement
(Boise) - Idahoans who bought the wakefulness drug Provigil® and are eligible for part of a $35 million settlement, have been given additional time to submit their claims. The extension also applies to those who purchased generic versions of the drug.
Attorney General Lawrence Wasden announced in August a settlement with Cephalon, Inc. and its affiliated companies. The settlement included Idaho and 47 other states who filed a lawsuit asserting that the manufacturer violated antitrust laws.
Those who purchased Provigil® and/or generic versions of Provigil® (modafinil) between June 24, 2006 and March 31, 2012 may be entitled to a payment. Initially, consumers were required to complete and submit a valid claim form by April 13, 2017 in order to be eligible for payment. However, the court recently extended the time to file claims to June 25, 2017.
To learn more about the settlement, and to submit a consumer claim form, consumers can visit www.stateagprovigilsettlement.com or call 1-877-236-1413.
