First off, how do you sue "ten unknown and unnamed physicians"?
Second, this is why healthcare costs so much, frivolous lawsuits.
They should lose, be ordered to pay everyones legal bills and their lawyer should be disbarred.

I'm a recovering addict who got started because my doc was prescribing me pain pills...BUT IT'S NOT HIS FAULT that I turned into a pill head! It was my fault I took more than prescribed, my fault I didn't seek help sooner..
Damn people need to take responsibility

If someone is retarded enough to file lawsuit of this nature, then it's time we just stop prescribing pills altogether. Only emergency facilities such as hospitals should have claim of said pills. It's obvious people can't be held responsible with such simple things.

Punishing the majority of pain patients because of the irresponsible actions of a tiny minority is not the solution. This is a typical frivolous lawsuit filed by idiots looking for a big payday. Their 'lawyer' must be a little short in the ethics department! Thanks to dea thugs and idiots like this couple legitimate pain patients are having trouble getting the medicines they need to maintain a decent quality of life.
