2 more Ohio counties to be subject of another opioid trial


A judge has added claims from two Ohio counties against pharmacies to the growing list of trials on governments' claims that the drug industry should be held liable for the U.S. opioid epidemic.

U.S. District Court Judge Dan Polster ruled Thursday that Lake and Trumbull counties should be the plaintiffs in a test case to be tried in his Cleveland courtroom in May 2021.
