HDA Files Lawsuit to Block New York Opioid Law
July 6, 2018
Today, the Healthcare Distribution Alliance (HDA), the national trade association for pharmaceutical distributors, filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York to block enforcement of New York’s Opioid Stewardship Act. The act imposes an unconstitutional $600 million punitive surcharge on pharmaceutical distributors and manufacturers. It bypasses judicial due process and impedes the industry’s comprehensive efforts to mitigate opioid abuse and misuse.
