Cuyahoga County to fund infant mortality programs with Johnson & Johnson opioid settlement


CLEVELAND — Cuyahoga County officials announced late last week plans to use $2.3 million in settlement money to fund two programs aimed at reducing infant mortality. 

The settlement was reached in 2019 between the county and drugmaker Johnson & Johnson as part of an opioid lawsuit. The settlement resolved claims the county made about the company’s role in the opioid crisis.
