National Association of Boards of Pharmacy Class Action Litigation Overview:
- WHO: Emily Glaspie filed a class action lawsuit against the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP).

- Where: The class action lawsuit was filed in Illinois federal court.
The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) falsely reported that pharmacist candidates failed their North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX), a new class action lawsuit alleges.
Plaintiff Emily Glaspie claims NABP falsely reported that she and “hundreds of others” “failed the NAPLEX when they didn’t.”
Glaspie alleges that NABP, which develops, implements and administers Naplex, incorrectly scored failed tests, causing “shock and distress” and “doubled-up or canceled job offers and accommodations.”
“Due to defendant’s negligence in scoring and producing the NAPLEX, plaintiff—and hundreds of others—suffered the embarrassment, stress, pressure, and negative connotations associated with failing the exam,” the NAPLEX class action states.
NABP alleged that it was aware of the incorrect scoring problem due to past errors
Meanwhile, NABP knew there were problems with scoring for the NAPLEX, and the NABP class action alleges that “the same thing happened to over 400 students in 2021.”
Glaspie wants to represent a class of individuals who were notified of a nationwide false score on the NABP-administered NAPLEX test between August 31, 2021 and September 8, 2021, and July 30, 2022, and October 26, 2022. Calculated.
NABP is accused of negligent misrepresentation, defamation, negligence and breach of contract. Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act.
Plaintiff requests a jury trial and requests actual damages for himself and all class members.
