New Jersey Sues Fentanyl Maker, Calls Its Conduct 'Evil'

Published: Oct 06, 2017

The lawsuit alleges that Insys Therapeutics Inc. directed its sales force to have doctors prescribe the drug Subsys for any type of chronic pain even though it was only approved for cancer patients who couldn’t benefit from other opioids.
