Updated : August 02, 2018 11:48 PM IST
In a lawsuit filed in federal court in Cleveland, Ohio, Allergan said the "primary basis" for the claims against it was the alleged improper marketing and sale of Kadian, form of morphine, in the years before it gained rights to the painkiller in late 2008.
Opioids were involved in more than 42,000 overdose deaths in 2016, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
