Maura Healey

Recently AG Healey “took on” the maker of OxyContin, Purdue Pharma, but did she really?

(MYRTLE BEACH) Massachusetts Attorney General (AG) Maura Healey filed a lawsuit against the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical company, Purdue Pharma, maker of the highly addictive OxyContin.  The AG alleged that Purdue Pharma misled consumers about OxyContin’s addiction and health risks in order to increase its profits.  She also named the Sackler family, owners of Purdue Pharma, as well as members of the pharmaceutical company’s Board of Directors.  Interesting approach, but one that made me very curious.  So I will make some observations, ask some questions and maybe, I will receive some answers because some things do not quite sit well here,

FDA can be sued in Prescription Opioid Epidemic — and should be!

The FDA’s approval of dangerous prescription opioids over the years can best be described as “fire, aim, ready” as the epidemic continues to rage out of control.

(MYRTLE BEACH)  Attached is a Memorandum of Law in Support of Plaintiff (Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Research Services Inc’s (PMRS) Motion for Summary Judgment filed against the United States Food and Drug administration (FDA) and the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  I encourage every Attorney General and law firm in the country suing Purdue Pharma, maker of OxyContin to read this filing carefully and apply it to current and future lawsuits.

President Trump calls for extermination of drug dealers responsible for causing deaths.  Should he include the pharmaceutical executives who knowingly marketed their dangerous opioids criminally which resulted in tens of thousands of deaths?

Last night, NBC Nightly News televised a segment on Insys Therapeutics and their criminal marketing of Subsys (Fentanyl) which has resulted in a landmark outcome — the arrest of CEO’s of the disgraced pharmaceutical company.  Here is a link to the NBC Nightly News broadcast https://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news/video/drug-company-bribed-doctors-to-prescribe-opioid-federal-indictment-says-1189045827628

Rudy Giuliani succeeded in keeping Purdue Pharma out of prison resulting in thousands of deaths!

Purdue Pharma, maker of OxyContin, pleaded guilty in federal court in 2007 to criminal charges that they misled regulators, doctors and patients about the drug’s risk of addiction and its potential to be abused.  The disgraced privately held Purdue Pharma, owned by the billionaire Sackler family, brought in “big guns” to negotiate the monetary settlement and hired Rudy Giuliani to avoid prison time.  Judge James Jones presiding over the sentencing imposed community service hours at a drug rehabilitation center to the three CEO’s of Purdue Pharma.  They were Michael Friedman, President, Howard Udell, Chief Counsel (now deceased) and Paul Goldenheim, MD.  With Giuliani’s shrewd legal skills utilized, Purdue Pharma continued to make billions of dollars while their created prescription opioid epidemic raged out of control.

Attorneys are becoming the heroes in the prescription opioid epidemic ravaging the US!

Rick Hollawell represents a family in N.J. whose daughter Sarah Fuller died in 2016 at the age of 32 as a result of being prescribed Subsys (fentanyl).

Is it an injustice that in 2007, Purdue Pharma, maker of OxyContin was charged in federal court and pleaded guilty to criminally marketing their dangerous and highly addictive opioid yet there were no arrests?

(MYRTLE BEACH)  Last month, “CBS 60 Minutes” and “The Washington Post” did an explosive expose on a former Drug Enforcement Agency official whistle blower, Joe Rannazzisi — who was brave beyond words to expose political wrongdoings fueling the prescription opioid epidemic.   Here is the link to “The Washington Post” article https://lnkd.in/dcqtrrU.  Rannazzisi wears several hats — former DEA official, pharmacist and attorney.
