Statement of United States Attorney McSwain on Today’s Opinion in the United States v. Safehouse Litigation

PHILADELPHIA – United States Attorney William M. McSwain issued the following statement regarding the opinion issued by the district court this afternoon:

“As Deputy Attorney General Rosen explained today, the Department of Justice remains committed to preventing illegal drug injection sites from opening.

We look forward to continuing to litigate it, and we are very confident in our legal position.”
