Ohio antitrust suit against drug middlemen hovers between courts

A lawsuit accusing huge health care companies of colluding to jack up prices is stalled as the sides fight over which court should hear it.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost last March sued Express Scripts, Humana and other companies, accusing them of violating state antitrust law and the Ohio Deceptive Practices Act.
