The city of Strongsville is following the example of the state of Ohio and other communities in suing the manufacturers and distributors of prescription painkillers.
Like other lawsuits filed against the prescription pain killer drug makers, Strongsville's lawsuit will now seek a specific monetary compensation, leaving the sought after total unspecified. It says the compensation being sought is for cost
The city is hiring two law firms — Climaco, Wilcox, Peca & Garofoli, a Cleveland law firm, and Napoli Shkolnik, a professional limited liability company in New York – to pursue the lawsuit. However, Strongsville will not pay legal fees to the firms unless it wins the lawsuit and receives a monetary award. Then the attorneys would receive a percentage.
