On October 5, 2020, Alcoholism & Drug Abuse Weekly reported on a case filed in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia against two physicians and United Medical Center. The plaintiffs are seeking $9 million in damages for the drug poisoning death of Victor Williams. Williams allegedly “had an opioid use disorder (OUD) and instead of being prescribed methadone or buprenorphine, he was prescribed Schedule II analgesics in the hospital. Just hours before his fatal OD, the hospital discharged him after an accidental heroin poisoning.” Full story (behind paywall).
