An internet pharmacy is being sued:

Now, in what is believed to be one of the first lawsuits of its kind, McKay’s parents are suing the Internet site’s operators, the doctor and the pharmacy for wrongful death and negligence. They are not suing the drug’s manufacturer.

John’s suicide was “completely unexpected,” said David McKay, a professor of structural biology at Stanford University who is devastated by his son’s death. “There were no obvious signs of depression.”

“I think John would still be alive if he hadn’t been able to get these pills. He didn’t realize the risks. They didn’t inform him of the risks. I’d like to see these people held responsible.”
