A Commonwealth Court judge has ordered pharmaceutical company Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. to stop inflating the wholesale price of its drugs purchased by the state’s pharmaceutical drug programs for the poor and for the elderly.

Commonwealth Court Judge Robert E. Simpson said in a Sept. 10 order in Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v.

The judge said Bristol-Myers owes $27.6 million to the state of Pennsylvania for the price of drugs charged in violation of fair trade practices.
