DDAMC Letters May Spawn State Lawsuits
Earlier this week, the National Association of Attorneys General held a symposium on the “Costs and Benefits of Prescription Drugs.” This is labeled a “presidential initiative” — i.e., it is the priority of NAAG’s current President, Vermont AG William Sorrell. The conference’s stated purpose was to explore ways in which NAAG can help control drug costs. One of the purposes was to discuss and share theories that can be used for lawsuits against the pharmaceutical industry.
