In 2013, former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said the manufacturers of Risperdal, Johnson & Johnson (J&J) and its subsidiaries, engaged in conduct that “jeopardized the health and safety of patients and damaged the public trust.” Subsequently, the global health care giant agreed to pay more than $2.2 billion to settle criminal and civil liabilities involving Risperdal and two other prescription drugs.
The settlement was one of the largest of its type in U.S. history and points to the severity of the harm caused by the “off-label” promotion of Risperdal.
