The Hobby Lobby retail store company has gone to court to fight the controversial federal mandate on contraception. The craft and hobby store chain, which operates several stores in Kentucky, is the latest in a series of organizations to challenge the Health and Human Services mandate.
The office of Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway says $6 million has been recovered from Merck and Company in a lawsuit filed against pharmaceutical companies. Its the latest in a series of settlements over so-called "average wholesale price" cases. The suits allege that defendent drug companies published false and inflated average wholesale prices for their products, which didn't bear any relationship to the prices actually charged to customers.
