Drugstore chain Rite Aid Corporation has filed a lawsuit in the U.S. Eastern District Court of Pennsylvania against Indian drug maker Ranbaxy Laboratories to recover litigation costs regarding the Reglan Litigation. Ranbaxy manufactures a generic version of Wyeth’s Reglan, called metoclopramide, which is used to treat vomiting and nausea.

Reglan litigation began after U.S. patients found the medication causes serious side effects, including irreversible body movement disorder. According to the lawsuit, Ranbaxy  and  Rite Aid Corp., have a Defense and Indemnity Agreement, which requires “Ranbaxy to defend indemnify and hold Rite Aid, its shareholders, officers, agents and subsidiaries from any and all losses….Ranbaxy’s refusal to defend and indemnify Rite Aid in the Reglan Litigation breached said agreement, causing Rite Aid to suffer, at this time, damages in attorney’s fees, costs and expenses in excess of USD 75,000,” MoneyControl.com reported.

“Rite Aid seeks compensatory damages with a present monetary value, exclusive of costs and interests, in excess of USD 75,000,” the lawsuit said.

Ranbaxy is currently evaluating the merits of the lawsuit.
