Prince’s Family Sues Doctor Who Prescribed Him Opioids leading to his death.
According to the news, the suit requests a minimum of $50,000 in damage.
Prince’s family is suing the doctor who prescribed opioids to the late music legend in the days leading up to his death. The family filed suit against Dr. Michael T. Schulenberg in a Minnesota court Friday (Aug. 24) accusing him of negligence and failure to recognize Prince’s addiction, thus playing a role in how he died.
According to the complaint, which was first reported by ABC News, Schulenberg “failed to appropriately evaluate, diagnose, treat and counsel Prince for his recognizable opioid addiction, and further failed to take appropriate and reasonable steps to prevent the foreseeably fatal result of that addiction.”
