The Lancaster Town Board formally signed an agreement with Napoli Shkolnik, Attorneys at Law, to bring and sustain a lawsuit against “the manufacturers, distributors, and key opinion leaders” of opioid pain medications, according to a resolution Monday night.
According to the New York City-based law office, prescriptions for opioid medications quadrupled from 1999 to 2014, despite no reported change in the level of pain experienced by Americans. Napoli Shkolnik draws from data via the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
