Federal Judge Reviews Opioid Lawsuits Settlements

On Tuesday, a federal judge in Ohio held a hearing with lawyers representing local governments from across the country and the pharmaceutical industry. The hearing was to discuss the proposed framework for a settlement structure that could apply to all local governments throughout the nation.  

As more and more local governments from across the country file lawsuits against drug manufacturers, distributors, and others seen as responsible for the public health crisis brought about by opioid abuse, the need for a comprehensive settlement grows. For more information on the overall status of the opioid lawsuit, along with a more detailed explanation of the proposed settlement framework, please see the League’s recent blog post.
