The Kennebec county commissioners voted Tuesday to sign on to a nationwide lawsuit against pharmaceutical companies that make and distribute opioids, a decision already made by several municipal and county governments in Maine.

The allegations in the lawsuit – being brought by Napoli Shkolnik PLLC of New York City and by Trafton, Matzen, Belleau & Frenette LLP of Auburn – are that the companies suppressed data on the risks of the drugs, and public entities have suffered.
