Ohio’s attorney general says his office is disappointed in a reported settlement with five drugmakers and distributors in advance of a huge opioid trial - a trial he tried to delay.

The consolidated opioid lawsuit known as the National Prescription Opiate Litigation starts in Cleveland on Monday, involving 2,600 local communities.
