From the Minneapolis Star Tribune:
Documents show Glaxo antitrust violations, Hatch says
Minnesota Attorney General Mike Hatch has incriminating documents from GlaxoSmithKline that show that the pharmaceutical giant broke state antitrust laws as it pressured Canadian pharmacies not to sell discount prescriptions in Minnesota, Hatch's office said in a motion filed Monday with the Minnesota Court of Appeals.

Hatch and his staff are seeking court approval to allow them to release internal GlaxoSmithKline documents that purportedly prove the attorney general's assertion that the drugmaker and others colluded to stop the importation of lower-priced drugs into the state by threatening to cut off supplies to Canadian distributors.
