Rochester has joined the growing list of cities, counties, state and others demanding compensation from opioid drug makers and distributors for an addiction epidemic that has reached crisis levels.

The Rochester City Attorney’s Office filed the federal lawsuit Monday.

“The city is seeking compensatory damages and injunctive relief for the City from the manufacturers and distributors of opiates,” City Attorney Jason Loos said in a statement announcing the lawsuit.
