In re Lidoderm Antitrust Litigation
Served as a key member of the leadership team on behalf of consumers and third-party payers who alleged that two drug companies, Endo Pharmaceuticals and Teikoku Pharma, unlawfully paid a third, Watson Pharmaceuticals, to delay the launch of less expensive generic lidocaine patches. After obtaining certification of the end-payer class and defeating defendants’ summary judgment motion, the case settled shortly before trial for $104.75 million.
In re Generic Pharmaceuticals Antitrust Litigation
A sprawling nationwide litigation alleging that many of the world’s largest drug makers conspired to prevent competition and raise prices through the pharmaceutical industry since at least 2011. Scott plays a central role in the firm’s efforts as a member of the End-Payer Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee.
In re Restasis Antitrust Litigation
Member of the antitrust team that serves as court-appointed co-lead counsel in a case alleging that Allergan used fraudulent patents and baseless petitions to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to preserve its monopoly for the drug Restasis by preventing generic versions from coming onto the market.

The firm was appointed to the Executive Committees in these “pay-for-delay” cases. Scott was responsible for overseeing discovery of the firm’s clients, including defending them at their depositions.
