The City of Tacoma vs. Opioid Manufacturers 

Keller Rohrback filed a complaint on behalf of the City of Tacoma in Washington against Purdue, Endo and Janssen, three of the biggest manufacturers of prescription opioids in the United States. The suit was filed to hold Purdue, Endo and Janssen accountable for an opioid epidemic that is having devastating consequences in Tacoma and across the country. For over 20 years, the Defendants allegedly provided false and misleading information to doctors and patients about the safety and efficacy of prescription opioids. Keller Rohrback is working closely with Tacoma officials to catalog the city’s damages and build a comprehensive case against these pharmaceutical companies.
