AMA/Sunbeam

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

American Medical Association will pay Sunbeam $7.9 mil. in damages and $2 mil. for expenses under a settlement agreement announced July 31. The settlement resolves a September 1997 Sunbeam suit designed to hold AMA to the terms of a five-year marketing/educational agreement, which included the use of the AMA symbol on over-the-counter Sunbeam health care products in exchange for inclusion of AMA educational materials with the products ("The Gray Sheet" Sept. 15, 1997, In Brief). AMA put the agreement on hold after concerns were raised that the use of the association's symbol might be perceived as a product endorsement
