Knox County in Maine Joins Opioid Litigation
February 13, 2019
Knox County has joined a lawsuit alleging that opioid manufacturers helped create the drug epidemic by pushing doctors to prescribe their painkillers to increase profits even though patients were becoming addicted.
Knox has become the 12th county in Maine to join the lawsuits against 28 manufacturers of opioids. County Commissioners voted unanimously to hire Napoli Shkolnik PLLC among other local firms.
