New York’s lawsuit against multiple opioid manufacturers is being moved to Jan. 20 — a full two months ahead of the original schedule.

Attorney General Letitia James cheered the schedule change, which comes after several high-profile settlements and rulings involving states and opioid manufacturers worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

“For more than two decades, the opioid epidemic has wreaked havoc on New Yorkers and Americans across the nation,” James said. “After all these years of death and destruction, come January, the actions of the manufacturers and distributors of these deadly drugs will be presented in open court and laid bare for the American people. We are committed to holding those responsible for a role in the opioid crisis accountable and will not stop fighting for justice for victims.”

James’s office filed a lawsuit in March against manufacturers and distributors of opioids. Those named in the suit include Purdue Pharma, the Sackler Family and Janssen Pharmaceuticals and its parent company Johnson & Johnson. Mallinckrodt LLC and its affiliates, Endo Health Solutions and its affiliates, Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. and its affiliates, and Allergan Finance, LLC.
