Floyd County Likely to Join Lawsuit against Opioid Manufacturers

The Floyd County Commission will likely join with Rome and other Georgia municipalities in a lawsuit against opioid manufacturers — after they've talked to local hospitals, physicians and pharmacists.

The board officially labeled the growing effects of overuse as a public nuisance Tuesday in a resolution that points the finger at pharmaceutical companies.

The discussion followed a presentation from two attorneys including Brinson Askew Berry partner Andy Davis who are putting together a case for a group of cities and counties in Georgia.
