Attorney General Plans to Sue Drug Manufacturers

Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager will be in Green Bay Thursday for a meeting of the Coalition of Wisconsin Aging Groups.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Lautenschlager will announce plans to sue about 20 major drug manufacturers.

The lawsuits will allege that drug makers have inflated wholesale prices and caused consumers to overpay for prescription drugs.

Thirteen other states have filed similar lawsuits.
