$97M Settlement Between Gilead and DOJ Over Kickbacks

Amid an industrywide kickbacks investigation into pharma's charity contributions, Gilead Sciences has become the latest drugmaker to strike a deal. Though the company says it doesn't believe it violated any laws, it agreed to pay $97 million to resolve kickbacks allegations.
