Delaware County Declares War on Opioid Addiction by Becoming
First County in State to Sue Pain-killer Manufacturers


Delaware County, Pennsylvania's fifth largest county, today declared war on opioid addiction by becoming the first county in the state to sue for damages against 11 major drug suppliers of opioids and their consulting physicians, who have for decades conspired to deceitfully promote and market "the benefits of using opioids to treat chronic pain". The unprecedented filing (Delaware County Court of Common Pleas, Docket No. 17-8095) was announced by the County Council, District Attorney Jack Whelan and Sheriff Mary McFall Hopper.
