Opioid Trials Have Begun

In West Virginia, the trial of three major opioid distributors began on Monday, May 3 in Cabell County.  AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal Health, and McKesson Corporation are being accused of creating a public nuisance by failing to monitor the ongoing opioid epidemic and “report suspicious orders under the Controlled Substances Act.” Amerisource contends that it had no involvement and is not responsible for this mass prescription. Atrial involving Teva, Johnson & Johnson, Endo and Allergan began in California on April 19.
