Attorney General Matt Denn announced yesterday that his office is participating in a national coalition of attorneys general investigating drug companies’ role in the opioid epidemic.

The coalition is looking at what role opioid manufacturers may have played in “creating or prolonging” the opioid epidemic.

“These efforts to hold manufacturers of opioids financially responsible where the law allows are an important part of our overall effort to improve prevention and treatment of substance abuse,” Attorney General Denn said. “If our investigations reveal that the manufacturers of these products violated Delaware law, we will seek to have them help pay for the fight to end the epidemic.”

In addition, Denn said his office is seeking bids from private law firms to serve as special counsel for the Department of Justice.

The coalition has not disclosed the names of any specific companies.
