What is the CVS Pharmacy, Inc. Class Action Lawsuit About?

A $3,800,000 class action lawsuit has been settled with CVS Pharmacy over allegations that some of its products were falsely advertised. The original class action lawsuit alleged that CVS packaged products of lidocaine deceptively, or in a way that led consumers to believe that the "maximum strength" amount of the lidocaine products would work from 8 to 12 hours.

Although the class action lawsuit has already been settled, CVS Pharmacy denies allegations made, and that there was any factual or legal basis for the false advertising class action lawsuit. It is also important to mention that the Court has not determined whether CVS Pharmacy or the class action plaintiffs are correct in their arguments.
