Schenectady County (NY) Considers Generic Drug Price Lawsuit
June 5, 2019
Schenectady County legislators are preparing to join other municipal governments in suing the makers of generic drugs over alleged price-fixing.
The County Legislature will vote Tuesday on a resolution authorizing County Attorney Chris Gardner to enter into an agreement with Napoli Shkolnik PLLC, a New York City law firm already working on a case with the New York State Association of Counties and other counties.
Separately, three New York counties are already working with Napoli Shkolnik on a lawsuit likely to be heard in federal court in eastern Pennsylvania, and the state Association of Counties last month circulated a memo suggesting other counties consider joining the effort.
