April 3, 2019 7:31AM CDT
A lawsuit filed by three Madison County men says that opioid manufacturers have targeted veterans. Last week’s suit was filed on behalf of a U.S. Navy veteran and two U.S. Marine veterans. The suit follows others filed elsewhere by governments and individuals seeking compensation for the effects of opioid abuse. The companies reject claims that they’ve ignored their responsibilities to prevent the abuse of the drugs.
