Beshear Files Lawsuit Against St. Louis-Based Pharmaceutical Manufacturer

On Thursday, July 12, 2018, Attorney General Andy Beshear filed a suit against St. Louis-based pharmaceutical manufacturer Mallinckrodt for profiting from its massive supply of opioids to Kentucky doctors and patients for decades. The lawsuit alleges Mallinckrodt sold and promoted its opioids by falsely claiming the drugs could be taken in higher doses without disclosing the greater risks of potential addiction. Beshear said this action allowed the company  to grow its market in Kentucky while contributing to the state’s drug epidemic. The lawsuit is Beshear’s seventh opioid related lawsuit.
