Bern Partners, LLP, & Cordisco & Saile, LLC to file suit against the manufacturers, promoters, and distributors of synthetic prescription Opioid medications on behalf of Newtown Township AT NO COST TO NEWTOWN TAXPAYERS!



The list of defendants includes major drug companies, including Purdue Pharma, which are named as defendants in similar lawsuits filed by other municipalities (read, for example, "Bucks County, Bensalem File Lawsuits Against Opioid Manufacturers in Hopes of Recouping Costs"). Other defendants include:

Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Cephalon, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Ortho-McNeil, Endo Pharmaceuticals, Allergan, Actavis, Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; Watson Laboratories, Inc.; Actavis (collectively, "Manufacturers"); McKesson Corporation, Cardinal Health, and AmerisourceBergen Drug Corporation (collectively, "Distributor Defendants").

Newtown Township will NOT incur any expenses related to this suit and it will NOT be charged any attorney fees for filing the action no matter what the outcome. The law firms will work on a 25% contingency basis, meaning that 25% of any fees awarded to Newtown will be retained by the law firms and 75% will go to Newtown.
