Complaint Against Opioid Manufacturers

The Case Against Opioid Manufacturers

Clark County, Nevada, filed a lawsuit against opioid distributors and manufacturers on the morning of Thursday, December 7th, 2017, as Clark County residents deal with the ongoing opioid epidemic. District Attorney Steve Wolfson filed a 46-page complaint in the Eighth Judicial District Court with approval from the County Commission. The widespread use of opioid drugs has resulted in a national epidemic of opioid deaths and addictions. Local governments, including Clark County, have been strained to the breaking point by this public health crisis.

Eglet Adams has a reputation for handling large cases in the Nevada judiciary and is known for obtaining some of the largest verdicts in the United States (2010 & 2013).
