NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today released the following statement after multiple opioid manufacturers and distributors were denied in their effort to push back an opioid trial on claims brought by the Office of the New York Attorney General, set to begin on March 20, 2020:

“For more than two decades, the opioid epidemic has wreaked havoc on New Yorkers and Americans across the nation. While the manufacturers and distributors behind this national nightmare continue to try to delay a trial that would expose their illicit misconduct, the courts continue to rule that the American people deserve to know the truth. In just a few weeks, the deadly scheme perpetrated by these companies will be presented in open court and laid bare before the American people, and no one will be able to deny the immoral actions that led us here. We are committed to holding each of these companies responsible for their role in the opioid crisis, and will continue fighting for justice for victims.”
