Lawsuit alleges endo lied about opana's safety
Endo Lied about Opioid Med’s Safety, Suit Alleges
August 23, 2017
A proposed class action suit states that drugmaker Endo misrepresented the safety of its opioid medication Opana ER, a situation that caused the company to pull the drug from the market and its stock price to plummet.
Shareholder Brandon Bier alleges that a formulation of Opana that was designed to make the drug crush-resistant and “abuse-deterrent” was based on false claims, and that the drug was no safer than previous.
Upon the release and rescinding of the new version, shares of Endo fell from about $35 to about $11 between May 2013 and July 2017. The suit alleges that the price drop had to do with the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) concerns about Endo’s failure to make Opana ER abuse-resistant.
Bier seeks to represent a class of investors who purchased Endo stock between Nov. 30, 2012, and July 6, 2017. He is alleging violation of federal securities laws.
Opioid abuse kills approximately 30,000 Americans every year.
