A: First please ask Justia to take down your email address. You'll get all types of unwanted attention.

Second, as to your question, you need to contact the person at the Attorney General's office to see if they are filing on behalf of the state or on behalf of people in your son's situation, and if they wouldn't be covering the damages for your sons claim who are the class action attorneys bringing those cases. The problem is that for an individual case you have to know what he was taking etc.
