Drug companies reach settlement, averting first federal opioid trial
"The morning there's been a major development in a case to determine who bears the responsibility for America's opioid crisis this morning for drug companies reached a tentative deal in a landmark case in Ohio where the crisis is clean thousands of lives the development came less than two hours before the trial was set to begin here the latest is north country public radio's Brian man he covers opioid litigation for NPR and he joins us on Skype from Cleveland so Brian it was just a couple hours ago you and I were talking about this case and the suit was moving forward there's gonna be trial was gonna start today now there's a tentative deal working his house yeah well first of all they were very sneaky and they did these talks through the weekend and through this morning behind closed doors so this was a surprise to everybody but yes there is a tentative deal now and it's with four companies involved three of the major drug distributors in the country including the cats and then cardinal health also the drug maker tavern and what they've agreed to do is pay out about three hundred million dollars in total that's cash but also some medical supplies that they're going to donate what's interesting here is that this only involves two Ohio counties right this is not a global national deal this is only for summit in Cuyahoga county counties and so this leaves some big questions about what this will mean for the rest of the country right so I'll ask about that minute but first if if for companies are part of the cell the settlement does that mean the remaining two are still going to trial what's gonna happen now the Walgreens and one other firm essentially Savile or severed from this deal and also suffered from this trial so this trial is not now going to go forward what will happen is that they will be bundled together with all of the thousands of other lawsuits that are still unresolved that will go forward and essentially there will still need to be some future test case to determine their liability and also with the larger liability for the entire pharmaceutical industry I mean all it's my understanding all of the companies have been pushing for some kind of settlement because presumably going to trial just makes them look worse in some way yes it is it's terrible P. R. what's come out through this litigation over the last year has been devastating for the pharmaceutical industry internal documents emails that have shown a lot of alleged wrongdoing as though that's bad the other thing that's happening here Rachel is that these companies are scrambling to find a global solution right we're talking hundreds of millions of dollars here for just two relatively small Ohio counties you multiply that by all the counties in the country it by this opioid epidemic and it's sort of death by a thousand cuts so by settling this now what these companies do is by themselves some time to go back to the bargaining table with state attorneys general and others and try to hash out something on the scale of the tobacco deal of the nineteen nineties that really puts this all behind the industry they didn't get that done here it's still just a local deal but it does by the more time to go back to the bargaining table while I'm at at this point range of any sense of where all of that money that is that's been agreed to and in the settlements where it's gonna go I mean you mentioned just these two counties yeah so someone kind of hokey counties have begun talking about how they're going to spend this money and and you know we have clinics and law enforcement in foster care programs all the different social service programs that have been hit hard by the opioid epidemic and and what's also gonna be happening now is thousands of other communities around the US are going to be sort of reading the tea leaves if these two counties were able to get this much relief by suing should we sued to should be signed on to these big consolidated federal cases that are moving forward so really in terms of the policy making how you operate at them because going to be treated this is just another sort of data point everybody now is going to be kind of

He is the special investigations chief for the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's office and a member of the Cuyahoga County Sexual Assault Kit Task Force now chief Bell just before the break as you heard Barbara was was pointing out that <hes> Cuyahoga County ramped up its efforts to deal with this problem rather quickly mm-hmm and what's your response to that in terms of <hes> not seeing that same effort or that same quick ramping up in other cities well. I guess we take a lot of pride and what we do. I'm a prosecutor. We like putting away the bad guys <hes> I have to imagine that everybody else that's in this position across the country would love to do the same thing we enter their unique position here because we have a lot of resources that have been given to us. We would not have been able to do this this without the Department of Justice or Attorney General Who's now our governor Mike Dewine and without the testing in house at the laboratory <hes> without being able to pick up the phone and say could you do a little more testing for us without our investigators as an advocate being right here co located with us and embedded with us. I'm not sure that this would have been successful but I think you have to get back in fairness <hes> to everybody to that question or that point that <hes> you in Barbara are pro made before and that's the willpower to do this. Yeah somebody has to take on the effort. Somebody has to make sure that they're investigating these cases all the way through not just a not just doing the testing and I think that we probably did have a headstart and I guess I can talk about what we've done and I can see that it's happening across the country. I'm more concerned about those cities that had happened done it inventory that haven't even started or attempted that happened <hes> the willpower to even look at it than say. Is there a culture change. We need to make something here because I think you're making a very important point in Cuyahoga County you had the combination of willpower and funds as you said <hes> Barbara in her reporting points out that there are other cities that have funds that have not or federal funds and have not come up with the same kind of results as you have love but to this point of willpower what you're saying. Is that someone in a position of influence or some ones have to care and if we're talking about a pervasive culture of not believing victims or <hes> not finding these cases worthy of of of more investigation. How do we change that? How do we get law enforcement officials prosecutors? D._A.'s governors as you're saying to care. It's you have to think about the victims that you're meeting <hes>. I'll just take it back to. I have seven sisters and three daughters that are watching over everything that I do. Do I think for a second that I would get away with a not caring for someone <hes> they would be on me and I think you have to take it down to that question. What if this were my daughter? What if this were my sister? What do I need to do to treat them fairly and righteously and to do everything in my power to do that and I think that people want what to do the right thing but so oftentimes the bureaucracies in different departments like kind of a fight against that and especially the volume the volume of cases? It's just undaunting for a detective <hes> in any department <hes> that doesn't have the resources are GonNa come back to you and just saying one more question for the chief because I absolutely here you when you say you know when you look into the eyes of victim that comes in wants to report a crime like like you might see. Your daughter someone you love but isn't a problem that according to Barbara's reporting <hes> what a lot of law enforcement officials are seeing isn't that kind of not having that that response of empathy but rather they're seeing Oh. Here's a woman who wants well was convicted of prostitution or here's a fourteen year old who might be lying or here's a woman who maybe chose of bad relationship..

"Then something more remarkable happen this summer almost three years after being locked up Carlton heard went to trial this time in front of judge John Russo, and he was acquitted of all charges. So what does this mean for judge goal for the moment? Nothing I asked whether he felt he'd screwed up in Carlton hurts case his answer. No, to me. He said, this isn't a case about an innocent man being railroaded by the system. It's a case clearly demonstrates how defendant and his attorney manipulated the system of Justice to their benefit and beat a murder case attempted murder, actually. The day Carlton was acquitted. I call judge Russo. He'd presided over the trial, but he's also the administrative judge for the cuyahoga county court of Common Pleas. He's not just goals boss, but he is the public face of the court. I caught him on his cell right when he got home from the trial. Is there any consequence for judge gall because of this? I mean, there isn't from noon, so I don't know. He's a colleague and so I, I don't reprimand him or sanction in new ways. After the verdict, when Carlton heard was acquitted jed Rousseau had apologized to him, said coercion has no place in the system at cetera, just Russo clearly disapproved of how judge goal had handled the case. But now on the phone with me, he was signing rather mealy about that. What seems frustrating is that there isn't some automatic now review or some automatic. Some investigations something. I mean, I've seen him do this in his courtroom to other people and. And if you're doing that, somebody needs to be made aware of it. I mean, I, that's it. There's a process, whatever that processes and ask. He started by somebody. I would argue that judge Russo is a somebody. I talked to another cuyahoga county judge who was outraged. By this case, he's a somebody a couple of attorneys. On this case whom I also spoke to their somebody's, the court of appeals judges ruled in this case. What about those somebody's? If any of these somebody's is afraid of reprisal from judge gall, they can even complain anonymously to the house approved court. There's a state board on grievances and disciplined as the thirty to investigate and sanctioned judges disbar them if necessary. Goals actually been through that process once before twenty ten. I won't give you the details, but suffice it to say the supreme court justices were appalled by what judge gall had done and said in that case, and then they gave him a fairly minor, reprimand a six month suspended suspension of his law licence, meaning he was able to stay on the bench. As of right now, I've not heard that anyone has filed a complaint with the supreme court against judge goal because of croton herds case, nothing about the case has been reported in the local newspaper or on TV. No one's picketing outside his courtroom. So judge goals, not too worried. He's been on the bench for twenty seven plus years. I take my role is protecting the peace and dignity of the state of Ohio, very, very seriously, and I wasn't elected to be stupid. He said, if he's being lied to, he's not going to sit back and pretend it's not happening. I wasn't elected six times to be a dumb ass. As long as voters, keep voting form, then he's going to keep on keeping on and he's right. Yes. There's the appeals court and the discipline board, but really every six years, it's the voters. Who have the final say most of the voters here here and everywhere. It's understood that. What did they now for decades, they've seeing the same Irish Italian names on the ballot.

Russ had no idea what the stuff was. Laughing. Oh, my that's steep is what it is. Anna, who's the court? A total of seven hundred eighty four dollars and fifty cents on top of the five hundred. She paid the bondsman rusted. There's a way he can petition the court to waive the fees Vanna campaign, but she doesn't ask them to. He doesn't offer technically is not her lawyer anymore. List of fees was surprised to Anna to have you seen this before this number? Now? Did you know about all these fees? No. No. I mean, I plan to pay it. I'm just, you know. Do you have a job? No. I just lost my job. So I don't know. Just crazy. Rianne getting hungry, Sarah. She's pregnant. She just found out.

Judge I was talking to for a different story in the series told me he was thinking of giving a defendant serious time what's serious time I asked explained well to someone with common sense, even one day in jail is devastating life changing to someone who's got no common sense. Maybe they do three years. Five years means nothing go right back out, commit more crimes. I knew any men punishment is relative what it takes to teach you a lesson depends on what you're used to, but there was more disturbing implication as well when that prowls this courthouse and throughout our criminal Justice system that we are not like them. The ones we arrest and punish the ones with the stink. They're slightly different species with senses, dulled and toughened. They don't feel pain or sorrow, or joy, or freedom or the loss of freedom. The same way you are. I would this little case for the state of Ohio wasn't little for Anna. In our interview, she couldn't bring herself to watch the bar surveillance video of that night. It was too upsetting. She teared up a couple of times thinking about what a horrible year at had been, and she blamed herself. She'd been stupid to go to a bar like that. She said the people she didn't trust. Anna doesn't have money. She doesn't have a stable job. She's really young, just twenty one. And I didn't feel the stress and outrage and shame of this case less than I would have. I think she felt it more. Before Annas final day in court, when she ended up taking the plea russet had only one interaction with the judge. Regarding Anna's case, he was summoned to her chambers Bakar bailiff who told us that judge Clancy had a question for him. Ross waited around for twenty minutes. Finally, the bail of came out and just related the question out of curiosity, the judge would like to know was the defendant in this case related to a county judge had recently retired. Same last name. Rest whole debate live now no relation. Russell me this almost a year after it happened. What if the answer had been? Yes. And it was related to the retired judge. Oh, said Russ, it would have been dismissed if they've found out she was a judge's knees or related in some way. I don't think she would have been charged. That how it works in Cleveland next time on Syria.

"Do maybe who ideally or what coalition of actors should be responsible for overseeing these programs in? What do you guys think are the correct programs to have in place? So from a provision of housing standpoint, right now, the people responsible for building affordable housing are is the private sector, the private real estate industry. Builds most of the housing in the United States, and the way that we build affordable housing is through federal subsidies, most of which go toward the development of affordable housing by the private sector as well as nonprofit housing developers. And as a result, what we have is people who are in the business of housing their landlords, they're property managers. And so as a result, what you have is folks who are implementing the the needs forcible housing that don't have the needs of the recipients of that assistance that is not in their best interest to protect. And so the first thing we have is is that our housing subsidies are are not enough. Our housing subsidies often will be targeted at moderate income households rather than poor and very poor households. And then the program that we have that is targeted toward very low income Americans. The section eight program that we've been talking about there simply aren't enough Auvers to go around. And then when people do get the vouchers, it's very difficult for them to find a landlord that will accept those. And if they are a family of color, it's even harder for them to find housing, and it's nearly impossible for them to find housing in in a neighborhood that provides a lot of opportunities amenities. So at the end, we need to fundamentally look at how we provide housing and ultimately stopped subsidizing the private sector real estate industry to provide audible housing and begin to target those subsidies toward the nonprofit housing developers who have a mission to serve their low income communities through housing. We also need to target communities who have concerns or fears about what it means to have Ford -able housing in their neighborhoods, and we need to make sure that. These conversations are talked about using facts and not stereotypes and on a suctions and not perceptions of who these people are, and we need to really start looking at poor people as neighbors and and not as threats because this is this is something that has a lot of historical relevance as well communities, particularly suburban communities have been exclusionary since they began. So what we see here with trying to limit affordable housing or being opposed affordable housing is very much in the same vein as trying to keep communities racially segregated in the nineteen fifties. And so what we see is that it's no accident that people of color are the ones who are just proportionately affected through both nuisance ordinances and refusal to accept housing bow bowker's because it very much continues on this is exclusively practice that our communities have been perpetuating over. Time, Megan. What about you? Do you have any kind of ideal policies that would address some of the issues that you've both brought up? So I have a couple and a lot of it comes down to how we design our policies and to really think through implementation and unintended consequences and how we can take a good idea and make sure it works in practice. So for example, the anti discrimination because of sources of income. Those laws allow voucher how holders to find places to live, but only if they are enforced. So while these laws are important to have and to think about making them more common and other jurisdictions, or maybe even a federal law, we also need to figure out a way to enforce those laws. And then in terms of criminal activity, nuisance laws, these laws also needs to be thought through very carefully. So what we've seen in. Cuyahoga county Ohio is that seven cities have already amended or changed their nuisance ordinance to get rid of domestic violence. So either exclusion or it's just not listed as a possible nuisance. So policies makers being aware that, hey, we don't want to punish a victim so they've taken that out, but they really the important things about nuisance. Laws is figuring out a way to give the pulse implementers enough discretion to figure out what's going on, but also not so much discussion that we don't see things we might want..

"Criminal activity nuisance ordinances have been put in place in order to deal with that issue, and they're done largely as a response to communities who are concerned about an increase in rental units. We have seen some evidence that communities that pass these nuisance ordinances or experiencing an increase in their African American population and other non white households, an increase in their rental population. A lot of this happened post for closure crisis. And so what you saw was a lot of foreclosed homes that were being converted from owner to rental it a lot of ways. And so people concerned about this. Well, we haven't seen is that they are response to any kind of. Uptick in criminal activity. So a lot of these are looked at as trying to preempt potential criminal activity that makes it may occur to make sure that if it does occur, it's dressed promptly and that the people who are causing the issues are not welcome in that community. The problem is that an implementation, they're not targeting necessarily the perpetrators of crime, but the victims and this disproportionately affect section eight voucher holders, do we know that through research? Yes, it does. We looked at a bunch of nuisance defections in cuyahoga county Ohio, which is where we live, and we found that disproportionately the people who are getting the notifications had vouchers were African American were women and had children and low income. Does it mean that victims of domestic abuse for one example, do you think that makes them less likely to call the police if they're aware of sort of the effects of the. Implementation of criminal activity? Nuisance ordinance. Absolutely. I think that's a valid concern. I don't think we have any specific numbers to say, you know, x percent of people don't call for help because of this. When we talk to legislators, one of the things that they say when they're thinking about putting domestic violence and the list of nuisance ODA fixations is that if they put this in place, the survivors of violence or the potential victims know that something could happen that there's consequences. And so they will put an end to the violence and they will do something to stop that from happening. But in fact, we find that that's likely not the case that other research into survivors of domestic violence. If they feel they're not being taken seriously or not responded to, they're just not going to call services. So while the rhetoric around these. Laws, including domestic violence in a nuisance notification is that maybe it'll help the problem. We're finding what it's doing is preventing reporting of the problem. And did you encounter any examples of people sort of running up against the problems with this type of policy in your research? We found a number of instances of nuisance ordinance of nuisance complaints being sent to victims of domestic violence because of the of the data we have. We can't necessarily follow up with those people because of confidentiality, confidentiality issues. We don't. We don't see names necessarily in police reports, but we do see is that victims of domestic violence are targeted with these nuisance ordinances. And what we do also know is that these nuisance ordinances can vary often lead to a vixen. And if you are a low income parent who suffering from domestic violence, urine extremely vulnerable situation, and those people do not want to be faced with vision because what we. No. Is that once you have an addiction on your record is extremely difficult for you to find housing again, and a lot of people who suffer from visions will eventually be end up homeless, and if you're a parent and that is what may happen if you call the police because you're being beaten, you probably won't do that. That is too big of a risk for you to take. You know you, you both are really experts in this area, and now we've come to the time to ask what's the answer to these problems that you've outlined? What should policymakers who are trying to keep their communities safe and affordable?.
