LOS ANGELES – City Attorney Mike Feuer today announced a multi-jurisdictional effort to disrupt the sales of dangerous, illegal, misbranded and counterfeit pharmaceuticals and detailed the filing of three separate lawsuits as part of his office’s ongoing efforts to curb this public health and safety threat.

The lawsuits come in conjunction with one of the largest multi-agency law enforcement investigations in the country’s history into illegal and counterfeit pharmaceuticals.

"My office and our law enforcement partners continue to fight to protect our residents from the health and safety hazards posed by illegal pharmaceuticals," said Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer. "Through these lawsuits, we seek to shut down what we allege are the unlawful activities of these suppliers, and to send a clear message to others who prey on the community that they’ll be next."
