Montgomery County set to join huge opioid settlement


Montgomery County commissioners will vote in a special meeting Thursday whether to join a massive federal settlement against opioid manufacturers and distributors just ahead of a Friday deadline.

Montgomery County announced in February 2018 that it would sue opioid manufacturers and distributors, similar to the city of Dayton, which initiated legal action in June 2017 against companies the governments allege bear responsibility for a crisis that killed thousands of Ohioans.
