Video: Updates on Opioid-Related Litigation from NACo Legislative Conference
NYSAC's Acquario joined other leaders to discuss opioid lawsuits.
In 2017, several states and over 100 counties filed lawsuits against manufacturers and distributors of opioids to recover the costs of prevention efforts, treatment and services as well as jailing residents addicted to prescription painkillers and heroin.
Over 50 New York State counties have filed one of these lawsuits, or are in the process of filing.
