CHICAGO — A man is suing Walgreens and a pharmacist for alleged professional negligence, slander and vicarious liability.
Erron Fisher filed a complaint June 19 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendants intentionally made false statements to the police to stop providing him with prescription drugs.
According to the complaint, Fisher was refused a refill of his medication on June 18, even though he purportedly gave the defendants valid prescriptions from a physician.
The plaintiff claims he was falsely accused of receiving and using drugs illegally. As a result, Fisher said he suffered grief, humiliation and damage to his reputation.
Fisher said he holds defendants responsible for allegedly refusing to fill a valid prescription, making statements of a criminal offense that were untrue to retaliate and harm another person and providing medical information to third parties without a warrant or legal justification.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment for damages greater than $50,000. He is represented by Erron Fisher of Fisher & Lamonica PC in Chicago.
