Judge makes default judgement against pharmaceutical company in Sullivan County Baby Doe suit
A Sullivan County judge has made a default judgment against Endo Pharmaceuticals regarding its role in the opioid epidemic in the region.
Chancery Judge E.G Moody entered the judgement in a ruling filed Tuesday, saying the company and its attorneys used a strategy to delay proceedings, deprive plaintiffs of information, and interfere with the administration of justice.
Moody also cited a dozen falsehoods from Endo’s legal team, and is holding them liable for damages sought by plaintiffs which include local District Attorney’s. The case, normally referred to as the Sullivan County Baby Doe case, was filed in 2017 and also lists a baby born as a plaintiff who has neonatal abstinence syndrome, a result of a baby being born to a mother addicted to opioids.
