Former DEA Agent Turned Whistleblower — Joe Rannazzisi — Joins Faculty

Joe Rannazzisi on CBS 60 Minutes.

While Americans are coping with the same amount of pain as ever, opioid prescriptions have quadrupled since 1999. The availability of opioids, despite the high risks of addiction and overdose, has made them popular as medical treatments and recreational drugs.

The opioid epidemic claims as many lives as 9/11 every three weeks. The CDC estimates that the abuse of powerful prescription painkillers costs the economy more than $78.5 billion annually.

Join us on Friday, Jan. 5, 2018, at 2pm for a deep dive and insights into litigation arising from this devastating epidemic. 

We are pleased to announce that former head of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency’s Office of Diversion Control, Joe Rannazzisi, had joined our panel to share his experience divulging the way distributors fed opioids into the population, fully aware, he says, of the deaths these drugs were causing.

Our faculty will discuss:

  • Overview of the crisis

  • Current state of litigation: causes of action & defenses

  • State and federal alternatives

  • Special damages

  • Overview of the science and medicine

  • Class actions

  • Answers to your questions via live chat

Registration is complimentary. This program is designed for plaintiff attorneys.
