For nearly three years, Carrie Goldberg and Naomi Leeds of C.A. Goldberg, PLLC, have represented families across the country whose children died by suicide from purchasing Sodium Nitrite on Amazon. These cases have spurred Sodium Nitrite legislation, including the federal Youth Poisoning Protection Act and Tyler’s Law. Now, one of our cases – McCarthy et al. v. Inc. – is up on appeal before the Ninth Circuit. 

If you or a loved one may be at risk of suicide, it’s very important to reach out to someone immediately. In the USA call 988 for 24/7, free, and confidential support.
