The City of South Milwaukee, along with six other Milwaukee County municipalities, filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against various opioid manufacturers and distributors.

Here is my comment …
“South Milwaukee is proud to stand with six other Milwaukee County communities in bringing legal action against the various opioid manufacturers and distributors named in the lawsuit filed today. Due to the named defendants’ conduct, opioid addiction has ravaged our county. Like other municipalities, South Milwaukee has expended an enormous amount of resources to combat the epidemic. Opioids have taken an intensely personal toll on our community. Too many people have become addicted. Too many families have been broken. Too many have died. It is time for these defendants to answer these charges locally.”
