Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery III today sued Endo Pharmaceuticals and Endo Health Solutions Inc. for making unlawful and false claims about the safety and benefits of its opioid products. The state’s lawsuit, filed in Knoxville, alleges Endo violated the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act and contributed to a devastating public health crisis in Tennessee. The allegations in the 180-page complaint detail how Endo deceptively marketed its opioid products as being less addictive and more effective than others on the market. The complaint alleges that Endo also knew the dangers of its opioid products and failed to clearly disclose those risks.
