The costs are everywhere: coroner's office, first responders, children services. Now, Lake County commissioners are considering following the footsteps of other counties — including
Cuyahoga County — and filing a lawsuit against manufacturers, wholesale distributors and so-called “pill mill” doctors who prescribed medications inappropriately or for non-medical reasons. With their national counsel New-York based Napoli Shkolnik, Gallucci said they’re also representing Cuyahoga County and are about to file on behalf of Trumbull County. Nationally there are 60 counties that have already filed suits.
