Killer Arkansas sued by McKesson Corp (MCK.N) to stop using their drug

In a repeat of its lawsuit against Arkansas, McKesson Medical-Surgical, a unit of McKesson Corp (MCK.N), said the state’s correction department had acted deceitfully when it purchased another drug, vecuronium bromide, a commonly used muscle relaxant given in extreme doses in executions to paralyze the body and halt breathing.

The state “intended to use this product in connection with executions, a fact that was never disclosed to McKesson,” the company said in Tuesday’s filing in state court in Little Rock.
