State and local governments across the country have taken the opioid crisis head-on, many of them filing civil lawsuits against opioid manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors and healthcare providers. As part of these lawsuits, plaintiffs have been issuing subpoenas to pharmacies that purchased products, including opioids, from wholesalers and distributors, such as Rochester Drug Co-Operative, Inc. (RDC). The subpoenas request numerous documents and often require a significant amount of time and resources to respond to.
Pharmacies should be aware of their legal rights and the implications associated with responding to subpoenas like these and engage the assistance of experienced counsel when responding to these subpoenas. Contact Frier Levitt today to speak to an attorney.
