South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley has filed a lawsuit against a few physician endorsed drug producers for misleadingly promoting opioid pharmaceuticals.
Jackley filed the common objection dated Wednesday in state court against Purdue Pharma, Endo Health Solutions and Janssen Pharmaceuticals.
The lawsuit affirms the drug organizations broke state beguiling exchange and Medicaid misrepresentation laws and made an open aggravation by spreading false data about the dangers and advantages of opioid pharmaceuticals.
Jackley says pharmaceutical organizations that “purposely and misleadingly” hurt customers must be considered responsible. The litigants didn’t promptly return demands for input from The Associated Press.
The lawsuit says the state is looking for harms, common punishments and a conclusion to any current “unlawful advancement of opioids.” The state says almost 600,000 opioid medicines were composed in South Dakota a year ago.
