Johnson & Johnson Ordered to Pay $572 Million in Landmark Opioid Trial

27 Aug 2019 8:30 AM | IJCSA - (Administrator)

A judge in Oklahoma on Monday ruled that Johnson & Johnson had intentionally played down the dangers and oversold the benefits of opioids, and ordered it to pay the state $572 million in the first trial of a drug manufacturer for the destruction wrought by prescription painkillers.


The amount fell far short of the $17 billion judgment that Oklahoma had sought to pay for addiction treatment, drug courts and other services it said it would need over the next 20 years to repair the damage done by the opioid epidemic.

Prepare for your J&J cleaning and home products to be increased in price to cover this lawsuit. -Matt
