Opioid Manufacturers Sued By Missouri Attorney General

Opioid Manufacturers Sued By Missouri Attorney General

On Wednesday, Missouri’s attorney general announced a lawsuit against three major drug manufacturers claiming that they fraudulently misrepresented the inherent risks posed by opioid painkillers. Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley said the lawsuit was filed in a state court against Purdue Pharma LP, Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen Pharmaceuticals and a unit of Endo International Plc. Opioid painkillers have become the center of a national addiction epidemic. Oxycontin manufacturer Purdue Pharma LP was already the target of a lawsuit earlier this year by Everett, Washington, a city of 100,000 north of Seattle.
