SC AG Alan Wilson suing largest opioid manufacturer

COLUMBIA, SC – South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson has announced his office is suing Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin and other opioid drugs.

The suit alleges that Purdue unfairly and deceptively marketed opioids, “which helped create and fuel South Carolina’s opioid epidemic,” according to Wilson’s office.

The lawsuit says Purdue violated the state’s Unfair Trade Practices Act, failed to comply with the terms of 2007 consent judgement with the state for similar conduct and created a public nuisance, according to the release.
