Ruling in opioid trial could impact Florida | 10News WTSP
It’s a ruling out of Oklahoma that could ultimately affect us all.
A judge on Monday said Johnson and Johnson is to blame for Oklahoma's opioid crisis. The giant pharmaceutical company is ordered to pay $572 million. The judge backed his ruling with evidence of more overdose deaths and more addiction cases.
Johnson and Johnson says it will appeal.
For families directly impacted by the opioid epidemic, the ruling signals a potential sign of what’s to come.
