Business digest
J&J SETTLES COLLUSION CHARGES: Johnson & Johnson agreed to pay up to $60-million to settle claims by 32 states that accused contact lens manufacturers of colluding to inflate their prices. The company will provide discounts of up to $100 for purchases of contact lenses and eye exams, said New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer. In addition to the discounts, Johnson & Johnson will pay $25-million to a settlement fund. Vistakon, a unit of Johnson & Johnson, denied it colluded or caused the prices to exceed competitive levels. Johnson & Johnson was the last company in the antitrust case to settle. Bausch & Lomb Inc. and Ciba Vision, the eye-products unit of European drugmaker Novartis AG, previously settled.
