DOJ continues to investigate opioid drugmakers

December 18, 2017 1:45 PM | Deleted user

The state Department of Justice continues to investigate the role pharmaceutical manufacturers played in creating the opioid epidemic.

Attorney General Brad Schimel announced in June that he was working with a bipartisan coalition of attorneys general in an ongoing investigation. He said Friday that they recently subpoenaed five drugmakers.

About two-thirds of Wisconsin counties have sued opioid manufacturers alleging that their marketing practices helped the epidemic. The companies have denied the allegations.

Two Democratic senators called on Schimel to hold drug companies accountable last month.
