Carroll County In a Drug Crisis
April 27, 2018
Local attorney Robert Bonsignore attended the Carroll County commissioners meeting Wednesday to answer questions. He said he would be working with Napoli Shkolnik PLLC, which has offices nationwide. He said Strafford County and other counties and cities across the U.S. have expressed interest. More than 100 cases have been filed already.
The Conway Daily Sun was provided with a slideshow style presentation that describes the proposed suit in greater detail. Among the defendants listed as manufacturers and marketers of prescription opioids are Allergan, Endo Health Solutions, Insys Therapeutics, Johnson & Johnson, Purdue Pharma and Teva Pharmaceuticals USA. Distributors of prescription opioids are listed as McKesson Corporation, Cardinal Health Inc. and Amerisource Drug Corporation.
Claims that they would bring involve violations of the Consumer Protection Act, violations of the state-controlled substances act, public nuisance, negligence, fraud and unjust enrichment.
