Kentucky Attorney General Sues Opioid Distributor

The Attorney General filed the lawsuit in Jefferson Circuit Court, claiming Cardinal Health "reaped a windfall off of the wave of addiction in Kentucky".

Beshear accuses the company of using misleading business practices to flood the state with opioids and failing to report suspiciously large volumes of the shipments to authorities.

The Kentucky Attorney General's Office is continuing to fight the drug problem by filing a lawsuit against another opioid distributor, accusing the company of choosing profits over people. "But a better future is possible. These companies have a duty to help fund those needs".

The Attorney General's office says DE and New Mexico also have lawsuits against Cardinal Health, and West Virginia settled a lawsuit against the company for $20 million. The first suit was filed in November 2017 against Endo Pharmaceuticals and Endo Health Solutions for violating state law and directly contributing to state opioid related deaths and overdoes from its drug Opana.

Cardinal Health is being sued for contributing to Kentucky's opioid epidemic that claimed more than 14-hundred lives past year.

"According to Cardinal Health's second quarter results for fiscal year 2018, they reported revenue, just for their pharmaceutical segment, of $31.1 billion".
