Seattle Opioid Litigation


The Seattle City Attorney filed a lawsuit to hold opioid manufacturers accountable for their part in contributing to the opioid and heroin crisis impacting our communities. The financial drain on public resources is staggering and these entities must be held accountable, individually and collectively for creating the public nuisance in violation of RCW 7.48.010 and the common law, engaging in unfair and deceptive practices contravening RCW 19.86.020, conducting a pattern of criminal profiteering activity in violation of RCW 9A.82.100, and participating in a civil conspiracy. This website provides information to the public that explains what this lawsuit is about.
