Kentucky Sues Purdue Pharma over Addictions

Kentucky is suing Purdue Pharma on claims that the company misrepresented its prescription painkiller, resulting in a wave of addiction and increased medical costs across the state. But before the trial can start, both sides must file "admissions so the court could determine a set of facts that are not in dispute. Kentucky officials filed theirs, which included claims that Purdue Pharma lied about the addictiveness of the drug to doctors, who then overprescribed it to an unwitting population of poor people in eastern Kentucky. But when Purdue Pharma did not respond, the judge ruled those claims were admissible in court. That cleared the way for the state to win the lawsuit with the only question being how much Purdue Pharma would have to pay. The judge's decision surprised company officials. When the state filed its claims back in 2007, Purdue Pharma had 45 days to respond. But in the middle of that window, the case was transferred to federal court at the company's request. Both sides had to file new sets of paperwork, and the original deadline for the state case disappeared. They pointed out a co-defendant in the case, Abbott Labs, also missed the deadline yet the court allowed that company to file a response anyway. And they said if the case moves forward like this, the company won't be able to defend itself and won't be able to get information from Kentucky officials about the state's role in the epidemic of prescription painkiller abuse.
