Subsidiaries of Johnson & Johnson have agreed to pay $5.9 million to settle a lawsuit with Montana over how an anti-psychotic drug was marketed, state Attorney General Tim Fox said Thursday.

The settlement with Janssen Ortho LLC and Janssen Pharmaceuticals closes the latest in a string of lawsuits across the nation over the drug Risperdal, including a $2.2 billion settlement in November with the U.S. Department of Justice.
