Ohio reaches settlement agreement with opioid distributors, says state Attorney General Dave Yost


Three major opioid distributors, sued over their role in the opioid crisis, have signed off on a massive settlement deal with the state, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said Thursday.

“This is a historic day for Ohio,” he said. “Ohio’s place is now secure.”

A larger deal involving other states and parties is still up in the air, so “we negotiated a separate Ohio deal for our trial, because it was imminent,” said Yost.
