The State of Texas sued Merck alleging that it engaged in Medicaid fraud in connection with the marketing and sale of its withdrawn painkiller Vioxx.
Econ One was retained by the State of Texas. Jeffrey Leitzinger submitted an expert report regarding the total amount of reimbursements made by the State through its Medicaid Program for Vioxx. Dr. Leitzinger also provided deposition testimony. The case ultimately was dismissed with prejudice.
