Pharmacist Hits Big—Again—With J&J Settlement

November 18th, 2013 by Qui Tam

Score another one for Bernard Lisitza.

The Chicago-area man had already collected millions as a relator who exposed fraud by Walgreens, CVS and Omnicare.  Now he will also share in the proceeds of a recent settlement with Johnson & Johnson.

All told, Lisitza has received more than $31 million for his role in ferreting out fraud.

In the most recent settlement, J & J agreed to pay $149 million to settle allegations that it paid kickbacks to Omnicare to get Omnicare to make unauthorized prescription substitutions.
