Motion to Dismiss Opioid Lawsuits Denied

Attorney General Andy Beshear announced that four of his nine lawsuits against opioid manufacturers and distributors have withstood motions to dismiss and are moving forward. Most recently, Judge Johnny Ray Harris issued an order denying AmerisourceBergen’s motion to dismiss on Monday, April 1, 2019 in Floyd Circuit Court. Beshear said circuit judges in Franklin, Madison, and McCracken counties have also denied motions to dismiss by Endo Pharmaceuticals, Mallinckrodt, and Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen. Kentucky now leads the nation in the number of individual opioid lawsuits filed by an attorney general.
