Boston is holding a law firm to sue pharmaceutical companies for damages caused by the deadly opioid outbreak.
Democrat Mayor Marty Walsh announced on Tuesday that he was touched by Motley Rice and the South Carolina law firm will file a lawsuit in the fall.
The company is already representing many local authorities in action against opioid producers and distributors, including Chicago, Santa Clara County and seven states.
Last week, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey’s office sued OxyContin’s producer, Purdue Pharma, and claimed that Connecticut reduced prescription pain relief risks.
Massachusetts is among two dozen states like Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Tennessee and Texas, which have recently filed suit against drug makers.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say that on average 115 people die from an opium opium every day.
