Obtained Full Dismissal for UnitedHealth Group, Inc. and PacifiCare, Inc. in Antitrust Lawsuit

January 16, 2009

Omnicare, Inc. v. UnitedHealth Group, Inc.

Robins Kaplan served as lead defense counsel representing prominent health insurers UnitedHealth Group, Inc. and PacifiCare, Inc. in an antitrust lawsuit involving alleged merger “gun-jumping,” price-fixing, and fraud related to prescription drug reimbursement under the federal Medicare Part D program. Plaintiff Omnicare sought damages exceeding $1 billion and permanent injunctive relief. Robins Kaplan obtained summary judgment dismissing all claims with prejudice, which was subsequently affirmed on appeal. 594 F. Supp. 2d 945 (N.D. Ill. 2009), aff’d, 629 F.3d 697 (7th Cir. 2011).

Past results are reported to provide the reader with an indication of the type of litigation we practice. They do not and should not be construed to create an expectation of result in any other case, as all cases are dependent upon their own unique fact situation and applicable law.
