CVS, Walgreens facing fewer allegations in federal opioid litigation


CVS and Walgreens now face fewer allegations against them in federal opioid litigation after an April 15 appeals court ruling, STAT reported. 

The retail pharmacy giants, along with Rite Aid, faced allegations that they contributed to the opioid crisis by dispensing addictive painkillers. The pharmacy companies argued that a federal district court incorrectly allowed the two Ohio counties that filed the claims to pursue the allegations.
