Cardinal Health Counsel Says Company Has No Obligation To Public


An executive at Dublin-based Cardinal Health, one of the nation's largest drug distribution companies, said under questioning recently that the business has no obligation to the public when it comes to the amount of prescription opioid painkillers it ships.

That's one of the exchanges included in thousands of pages of court documents, including depositions and internal emails, made public this week in lawsuits brought against the pharmaceutical industry over the nation's deadly opioid crisis.
