Oklahoma Opioid Lawsuit
Johnson and Johnson Trial Begins in Norman
IncSmart Oklahoma (Small Business and Startups) - Oklahoma opioid lawsuit is the first state to be watched nationally for ongoing health crises. The Attorney General filed suit in June of 2017 accusing Johnson and Johnson of intentionally creating the drug crisis. The Attorney General said they aggressively marketed to doctors knowing there was an addiction problem. If the case is settled out of court, it will set a precedence for the county at large in the state suites that are filed or are pending, In a previous law suit against OxyContin, the state was awarded several hundred million dollars that the state will use for addiction research.
