Mylan resolves defamation suit against Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, two reporters


PITTSBURGH — Mylan on Friday announced that the company and its subsidiary, Mylan Pharmaceuticals, have resolved the defamation and other related litigation filed by Mylan against the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and two of its reporters.

"The litigation has been resolved to the satisfaction of both parties," the parties said in a joint statement. "The Post-Gazette did not find and did not intend to report that Mylan had manufactured or distributed any defective drugs. The Post-Gazette regrets if any reader of the article thought otherwise."

Back in 2009, Mylan filed suit against the newspaper for publishing articles that alleged the drug maker conducted pervasive manufacturing misconduct at the company’s plant in Morgantown, W.Va.
