The Most Innocent Victims of the Opioid Epidemic Are In Danger of Being Left Behind
In a recent opinion piece, one of our co-counsel, R. Booth Goodwin II, in the fight for compensation for the most innocent victims of the drug epidemic lays it on the line. The headlines are frequent. The danger to innocent children being left behind is unfathomable. There is a massive group of lawsuits brought on behalf of cities and counties in front of a U.S. District Judge pending in Cleveland. Those cities and counties asked for and received designation of a "negotiation class" to try to cut a deal with the big drug companies. Any recovery from the municipality claims will be spread far and wide and the innocent children will be left out. Read more of Goodwin's opinion piece in the Charleston Gazette-Mail here.
