W.VA. Attorney General announces agreement with Endo

West Virginia’s Attorney General Patrick Morrisey announced in a news release a settlement with Endo Health Solutions Inc.

The settlement of $26 million will be shared by all city and counties in West Virginia.

This is in regards to a lawsuit that was filed in 2019.

The lawsuit alleges that Endo Health Solutions failed to disclose the serious risk of opioid addiction.

The suit also alleges that Endo overstated the benefits of chronic opioid therapy and promoted higher dosage without disclosing the greater risk.

Along with the monetary settlement Endo has agreed to not make false claims or encourage the use of opioids.

Endo must also operate an effective monitoring program using downstream customer data to identify suspicious orders.
