Eli Lilly is suing Georgia Weight Loss, claiming it sold a counterfeit version of Mounjaro

Eli Lilly, the Indianapolis-based pharmaceutical giant, filed a lawsuit Sept. 19 in the Southern District Court of Georgia accusing a Georgia weight-loss clinic of manufacturing and selling drugs disguised as Lilly’s blockbuster diabetes drug Mounjaro. The lawsuit, part of a series of cases supported by King & Spalding, accuses Georgia Weight Loss & Aesthetics LLC of selling unapproved drugs that allegedly contain tirzepatide, the active pharmaceutical ingredient in Mounjaro. Two other similar lawsuits were filed the same day in Florida Middle District Court against two pharmacy companies. According to the Georgia lawsuit, Lilly is the sole supplier of FDA-approved tirzepatide drugs in the United States. No lawyers have appeared for the defendant yet. The case is 5:23-cv-00087, Eli Lilly and Company v. Georgia Weight Loss & Aesthetics, LLC.
