New Yorks Ag Is Filing Nations Biggest Lawsuit Against Opioid Makers

03.29.19 | Sarah Harnisch

Letitia James alleges six national drug makers and four distributors are responsible for creating the opioid epidemic that's caused widespread overdoses and addictions over recent years.

The AG accuses them of using false and deceptive marketing-- suggesting alternative pain relief methods were more dangerous than opioids.

Perdue Pharma, Rochester Drug Cooperative, and McKesson Corporation are among the companies named in the suit.
