Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison says the owners of the pharmaceutical company at the root of the opioid crisis were “motivated not by human dignity or the value of human life, but by unlimited greed.”

Forty-eight states and the District of Columbia are suing the pharmaceutical company and its owners for allegedly lying about the addictive nature of powerful painkillers that caused a national addiction epidemic.
