Brooklyn Federal Judge Refuses to Lift Asset Freezes in Counterfeit HIV Drug Lawsuit


U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly of the Eastern District of New York denied requests to lift or modify asset freezes against the defendants in a lawsuit regarding alleged counterfeit HIV drugs, instead ordering that the asset freezes be entered as preliminary injunctions.

Donnelly on Monday ruled that the plaintiff, Gilead Sciences, met its burden to show that defendant Scripts Wholesale “engaged in a pattern of fraudulent or evasive conduct so as to justify a preliminary injunction freezing assets to satisfy a potential equitable award.”
