Hopkins County to Sue Big Pharma Over Opiates

Judge Robert Newson

Hopkins County Judge Robert Newsom says some of the earliest lawsuits naming pharmaceutical companies for violations of the Texas Controlled Substance and other laws concerning opiates might be filed in Hopkins County ahead of federal courts. He says he has received indications of this.

Last week the Hopkins County Commissioners Court decided to enter an agreement with some Smith County and Dallas area law firms pursuing violations in marketing and sales of opiate based painkillers. Newsom says opiates have brought harm to the county and some of its citizens. Judge Newsom expects litigation to go on for years, similar to tobacco-related lawsuits years ago.
