New York’s Napoli Shkolnik and Stull, Stull & Brody and the Ferraro Law Firm in Miami filed suit along with the county attorney’s office. The county is seeking to recover damages for use of public resources to fight the opioid crisis. The lawsuit focuses on the growing problem of people becoming addicted to prescription painkillers, which often escalates to abuse of street drugs such as heroin. Palm Beach County has been recognized as a center of the opioid crisis, in part because of the growth of the drug rehabilitation industry in the region. “We are moving fast to bring justice to the people of the county who have had to carry this burden for too many years,” Hunter J. Shkolnik of Napoli Shkolnik said.
