Twin Ports Filing Lawsuits Against Opioid Manufacturers, Distributors

The Duluth and Superior city councils have both unanimously voted to file lawsuits against opioid manufacturers and distributors. 

The two cities will file separate lawsuits but are working together and sharing information and resources. Both will hire an outside law firm, Keller Lenkner out of Chicago, to represent them in the lawsuits. 

Seth Meyer, an attorney with Keller Lenkner, explained that there are two objectives to the lawsuit: monetary damages and injunctive relief, which would aim to prevent opioid manufacturers and distributors from continuing to do the things that led to the opioid epidemic.
