          AG James Lauds Accelerated Opioid Trial Timeline

          NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today released the following statement after New York’s trial against multiple opioid manufacturers and distributors was moved up two months, to January 20, 2020:

          “For more than two decades, the opioid epidemic has wreaked havoc on New Yorkers and Americans across the nation. After all these years of death and destruction, come January, the actions of the manufacturers and distributors of these deadly drugs will be presented in open court and laid bare for the American people. We are committed to holding those responsible for a role in the opioid crisis accountable and will not stop fighting for justice for victims.”

          In March, Attorney General James filed the nation’s most comprehensive lawsuit against multiple manufacturers and distributors. In addition to Purdue Pharma, its affiliates, and the Sackler family, the other manufacturers included Janssen Pharmaceuticals and its affiliates (including its parent company Johnson & Johnson), Mallinckrodt LLC and its affiliates, Endo Health Solutions and its affiliates, Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. and its affiliates, and Allergan Finance, LLC and its affiliates. The distributors named in the complaint are McKesson Corporation, Cardinal Health Inc., Amerisource Bergen Drug Corporation, and Rochester Drug Cooperative Inc. 

          The accelerated trial date announced today covers the New York Attorney General’s lawsuits against all manufacturers and distributors other than Purdue Pharma and the Sackler family. The case against Purdue and the Sacklers is moving separately through U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
