The Town of Cheektowaga is following a national trend and will be filing a lawsuit against the manufacturers of opioid drugs because they say their negligence has led to the heroin epidemic.
Town lawmakers say the drug manufacturers, distributors, and key opinion leaders have violated New York’s General Business Law in creating this public health and safety crisis.
The lawsuit will be filed by outside counsel Napoli Shkolnik, PLLC, and Gibson, McAskill, & Crosby. Both firms are experts in handling mass tort,
class action, and major product liability claims.
