The family of the late rock star Prince is suing a doctor who prescribed pain pills for him, saying the doctor failed to treat him for opiate addiction and therefore bears responsibility for his death two years ago.
The family claims that Prince was not prescribed the proper dosage by Dr. Michael Schulenberg back on April 20, 2016, just a day before the overdose. The family has already filed a lawsuit against the treating hospital and Walgreens for distributing the drugs to Prince.
As it was reported, Prince’s toxicology report showed that his body contained “exceedingly high” of fentanyl. Despite the lawsuits, no criminal charges have been filed.
