CHARLESTON, WV (AP) — A group of West Virginia attorneys is asking a judge to force the state to release the names of babies born exposed to drugs as part of the Purdue Pharma bankruptcy case.
The Herald-Dispatch reports the lawyers want the names so they can send families a notice of pending litigation and seek compensation for them. They filed a complaint in Kanwaha County Circuit Court seeking the names.
Attorney Booth Goodwin says the deadline for individuals and entities to file a claim against Purdue Pharma in the bankruptcy case is July 30, 2020.
Attorneys are concerned that families may not know they qualify for compensation.
