Castrataro calls the law “flawed”“arbitrary” and “capricious”
The City of Wilton Manors has enacted a controversial ordinance that would limit the amount of pain medications smaller neighborhood pharmacies can dispense. The new law, passed to regulate pain management clinics, may nevertheless adversely impact thousands of HIV and cancer patients in the area.
Two of the pharmacies affected, The Medicine Shoppe and Quick Script, have hired prominent local attorney, George Castrataro, to overturn the ordinance. Castrataro has indicated he is prepared to go to court and seek an injunction to prevent implementation of the new law.
He stated the new law will “undermine substantial rights of the specialty pharmacies and over 2,000 of their constituents.” Castrataro stated that the city “had failed to consider the implications and overreaching aspects of the ordinance.”
Owner of The Medicine Shoppe, Lynn Williams, said the ordinance would certainly harm her pharmacy.
“This will definitely impact us and be detrimental to my patients,” she said.“They want to control how I dispense class 2 medications.”
