Napoli Shkolnik is filing suit on behalf of municipalities, states/attorney generals, individuals and unions against the drug manufacturers, distributors, prescribers and pharmacies.
Purdue Pharma manufactures OxyContin and Dilaudid, among others, and has generated from $2 to $3 billion annually in sales of OxyContin alone. Napoli Shkolnik Partner Shayna Sacks said they are the “grandparent” of the epidemic. The causes of action are negligence, false advertising, nuisance, consumer fraud and unfair and deceptive practices, Sacks added.
