Five county commissions, including Monongalia, Marion, Doddridge, Randolph and Upshur, are joining in on dozens of lawsuits filed against Purdue Pharma and many other pharmaceutical companies for the opioid crisis.
The commissions claim the defendants put their desire for profits above the interests of the health and well-being of the counties’ residents.
The counties are seeking compensatory and punitive damages with pre- and post-judgment interests. They are represented by Napoli Shkolnik PLLC attorneys Paul J. Napoli, Hunter J. Shkolnik, Joseph L. Ciaccio, Shayna E. Sacks and Salvatore C. Badala among others.
