MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Attorney General Troy King says Alabama
will receive $2.9 million from the record-breaking $2.3 billion in
fines being paid by Pfizer Inc.
The Justice Department announced the penalty Wednesday and
called the world's largest drugmaker a repeating corporate cheat.
King said part of the $2.9 million going to Alabama is
restitution for Medicaid drug expenses and part of it will be used
for consumer protection activities.
