Justice Department Sues Walmart for Alleged Role in Opioid Crisis

"Retail giant walmart is under fire for its alleged role in fueling the nation's opioid crisis. The justice department has sued. The company alleging created a system that turned. It's five thousand in store. Pharmacies into leading suppliers of highly addictive painkillers. The suit comes after walmart. Preemptively sued the federal government in october to fight. The expected allegations joining me now to talk more about this is washington business reporter. Tim pukekohe hi. Tim thanks for being here. Hi thank you so tell us what specifically is alleged in this lawsuit against walmart. The us government is listing walmart among relatively long list of companies. Now that have some role in the opioid crisis. What the justice department is saying. Is that through the system. That walmart created its pharmacies. It created an environment where doctors and drug abusers could prey on its pharmacies and have invalid. Opioid prescriptions by the thousands filled at walmart pharmacies. Now there were also some allegations within that lawsuit from walmart pharmacists that the company ignored their warnings. And the suit also alleges that. It was difficult for them to reject prescriptions. They found problematic. Can you talk a little bit about how that system worked. The government's lawsuit portrays a company in which pharmacists were under an extreme amount of stress confronted by demands from their own managers to work faster and from a deadly crisis. That was unfolding you right in front of them walmart. Of course it's famous for low prices and book sales and just as a matter of course wanted it's pharmacies to get out. Low cost drugs at a relatively fast clip. Fill the prescription fast. And according to the allegations of the lawsuit the walmart managers believed it would keep customers in the store and shopping and so that was a matter of course for these pharmacists. When you add opioids into the mix then it becomes a lot more dangerous. A lot of these doctors could see. Suspicious prescriptions the same doctors coming back over and over again over prescribing patients. They sought help from compliance managers at the company to do things. Like just you an on. Moss rejection of prescriptions from doctors. Like this and they were told time and again. No you cannot do blanket rejections. You have to do them. Only on a case by case basis and because of their other pressures to get these prescriptions out to get prescriptions. Broadly out very quickly in the end pharmacists felt like they didn't have the time to scrutinize. Each of these prescriptions and ultimately had to end up for filling a lot of prescriptions. That they believe were invalid to begin with now. Walmart had been expecting this lawsuit. The company actually preemptively sued the justice department. Can you tell us more about that suit. And what walmart is saying. Now there's been a broad and at times very aggressive conflict between the federal government and other governments around the country with different major corporations that are alleged to play a role in fueling this crisis. Walmart has taken an aggressive stance in trying to fight allegations before they came. The company filed a lawsuit in october. That said department of justice. Investigators had been looking into the company and had been informing the company of all these pending allegations and there are a lawsuit was a preemptive strike against that. They've said that in their opinion the department of justice and also the. Da had basically been trying to scapegoat walmart for the government's own regulatory failings and they'd said that for example many of the doctors that the department of justice said walmart should have been keeping an eye on are still registered and active with da. And so in walmart's opinion if the government couldn't stop these doctors for making prescriptions. He'll it's not really fair for it to expect walmart to stop at according to walmart's claims and its own lawsuit followed the law to the best of their ability and walmart today. Reiterated many of those same points and added that the lawsuit quote is riddled with factual inaccuracies and cherry-picked documents taken out of context tim. We've seen several drugmakers charged for their role in the opioid crisis as well as some settlements is walmart's lawsuit indicative of a widening of the investigation into the opioid crisis. And who else might bear responsibility. I hate to speculate on other companies that are going to be charged but what i think. It is emblematic for sure. Is that governments. Broadly but especially the federal government are being as aggressive as they can be about finding anyone with culpability in this crisis. President trump back in two thousand eighteen directed. Then attorney general jeff sessions to go out and file a major lawsuit. He was talking then. Spur more specifically about the drug makers. But yes what we've seen since then is a whole litany of lawsuits against not just the drug makers but distributors and now retailers as. Well one other facet to note in this case is that for a time. Walmart was duchess a retailer and the pharmacy for many for many customers but it was also a distributor walmart is is the world's largest retailer in has a huge network five thousand in store pharmacies at all not just at walmart's but at sam's club too and its reach throughout american society goes incredibly far. So what you see. The government here is finding another major players one of the biggest targets that could possibly come across and going after it as aggressively as it has gone against the drugmakers to that's wall street journal washington business reporter.

Interview With Signet EVP And Global CIO Howard Melnick

"Howard melnik. Welcome to second ovation. Thank you peter adding me. That's a pleasure. I thought we begin a howard with your your role. You're the executive vice president global chief information officer of signet. And i wonder if you could take a moment for those who may be less familiar with the company. Can you provide a brief overview as to what you all do. Let me tell you a little bit about my role and a little about signet. So i i've been at signet for about two and a half years and drew me to signet was that the company was launching transformation with a digital focus and a real customer first mentality. My sweet spot has always been integrating business and technology to create value as you mentioned. I'm accountable for information technology as well as analytics programs really focusing on things like being customer centric digital first or accelerating our cloud adoption and using analytics with machine learning in ai the Overall focus is really on driving business value. I part very closely with both our chief innovation officer arner chief digital officer To really create a world class customer experience. And so peter as you mentioned many people may not know the name sick but you're probably really familiar with the brands that we represent so first. Six cygnets mission is to celebrate life and express love so kind of what a what a great place to work at a particularly in these times where the world's largest retailer diamond jewelry and the largest specialty retailer in the us the uk and canada the brands that we have our kay jewelers zales. Jared piercing pagoda people's jewelers in canada h samuel and ernest jones in the uk and james allen which is actually a digitally native company which was a out of tel. Aviv's will thank you for that overview howard. I appreciate it Would love to talk a little bit about your your current strategy. I know from our past conversations that you've talked about the aspects like the path brilliants Some of the omni channel type aspects that you're doing and so on maybe you can dive a little bit further into some of the details of those if you would okay. Great peter so. I let me give a little background which i think really helps frame up the business strategy so signet. The group was founded in nineteen forty nine and grew organically until the late eighties early nineties. Back in february of two thousand fourteen signet acquired zales corporation which was based in dallas. And then two thousand seventeen we purchased to net. Which are the owner of the company. James allen which really starts to be our innovation hub so these acquisitions were great because they gave us breath and scale but gave me the ability now to say i have multiple technologies. Or how do i leverage that scale but at the same time be able to create really unique experiences by brand for our customers so with that we born are packed. Brilliant strategy now if you go back and think five or ten years ago. Julia was not a big on line. Purchase category jewelries intricate people. It wasn't a book and so we started to develop a strategy back in two thousand eighteen. That had three strategic pillars the customer first on the channel with a digital focus and building a culture of agility inefficiency and so peter when we last spoke which was about eighteen months ago we were just in kind of wrapping up to your one and one for us was fixing operational issues building a foundation getting us ready ear to came and that's really what strengthening our foundation rebuilding on the channel capabilities. We're actually getting us more product diversity and starting to really focus on innovation and then in year three where we sit now when we really were gaining momentum cova hit and coded for us was actually an accelerate. I would say in two months of kobe. We probably did two years worth of work. And so many companies kind of shutdown. We really started to accelerate areas of digital growth. And i think what we've seen is customer treads also accelerated things like buying line up in store curbside pickup. These are things that were kind of emerging at at slow pace but have really accelerated. I think in a post covid world are going to last forever very interesting and talk. Talk a bit if you will about the the way in which that. It strategy that path the brilliance supports the broader enterprise strategy with paths brilliance laid out. We developed an it strategy that had four key areas. I was when i called fix improved so a certain areas that we inherited that we wanted to make better Around people process technology data than the next area was with multiple brands. What are the areas. I should harmonize and then modernize and then the last area was really around innovation when we think of innovation innovation for us isn't just catch up. Its halloway leapfrog the competition. What can i do to really position as well so let me walk you through each one of those areas in some of the give some examples of things we did so if we look at one of the first area which was fixing improve. I'm a big fan of jim collins. The author good to great and one of the things he says. Is you get the right people on the bus. So the first thing we did is get the right people on the bus and then we started to look at our operating model and so since we had grown up with multiple banners multiple campuses traditionally were organized by technology by geography with some people sitting in akron in some people sitting in dallas. What we wanted to do is organize by foce. And so we started to make that shift where e-commerce team moved from traditional project teams to product teams but in other areas we started to leverage the concept centers of excellence particularly around areas like integration. Devops testing analytics.

It's also the biggest private employer more than a million and a half Americans work at a Walmart recently. Becky quick sat down with the company's leader Delaware Maryland. Ellen okay. That's just one two three four. Five McMillan's job is enormous. Think of those one point five million workers they call the associates and twenty one consecutive quarters of sales growth in Walmart stores. That's a streak. That Wall Street hopes will continue. And as you'll hear from Macmillan in this interview and in past comments he's made that will remind you of his job description. It only grows walmart has been thrust into the center of the debate on gun control in America following a deadly shooting shooting at one of its stores in August. A gunman walked into a crowded El Paso Walmart on a Saturday morning and killed twenty two people that location has only just reopened. Now the shooting shooting and policy changes since have made the job of CEO of the country's biggest retailer. A role of national importance will bring you all of this exclusively I beckon. Hi Katie I in this episode of Squawk Pod. Let's catch up with becky quick. Let's talk about Walmart. The biggest retailer in terms of sales in the US one of the biggest biggest employers in the entire world And run by a guy named Doug Macmillan yet. What cracks me up about Walmart is right around the turn of the century they hired and more people than anybody on the planet with the exception of the US government or the Red Army in China? That's still the case today They are a massive employer. They are massive in terms of their reach. I think about ten percent of. US retail sales are just walmart so ten percent overall US retail sales walmart. Doug Macmillan melon is a guy who started there when he was a teenager started working in one of their supply distributions warehouses. And he's been there ever since but he's done just about everything there. We are just getting news of some significant management changes at Walmart. Doug Macmillan has been named to succeed Mike do as president and CEO. This is effective defense. I you had all the stuff going on in Mexico last year with alleged bribery. You've had poor worker relations and then you had this Ohio Walmart recently. Which announced a food drive for its own workers? You can't deny becky that Walmart has been for deserved or not. The subject of a lot of men. How long when you've been covering Walmart is a company? I used to cover retail for the Wall Street Journal I started back in the Nineteen Ninety S. I think it was one thousand nine hundred ninety nine.

"With us. Welcome into Wednesday beyond the headlines now. This morning's Mike Gavin is here with a look at some of the other stories you'll be talking about this morning. Good morning. Well, if you want to win at the Twitter game, it appears you have two choices ask for free chicken nuggets or give away free money. The latter has catapulted a Japanese entrepreneur into the record books are passing one of our favorites. According to Sky News, you suck up. My Zaghawa took to Twitter last weekend and pledged to give away one hundred million yen, the equivalent of over nine hundred thousand dollars to his followers. Mr. Massawa is Japanese billionaire and the founder of Zo town, the country's largest retailer all people had to do or to to begin with a chance to win was followed the entrepreneur and re tweet his message and no surprise people like the idea of winning free money. The post has now been re tweeted over five point four million times blowing past the previous record holder Carter Wilkerson if that name doesn't sound familiar maybe his tweet will nearly two years ago. Wilkerson tweet it in all caps help. Me please a man needs his nuggets. Visit an attempt to get free chicken nuggets from Wendy's. And his plea for help was re tweeted over three and a half million times making Wilkerson a bona fide internet sensation for a little while. Now, we're not sure if miso is a fan of chicken nuggets, but we do know that you could send a whole lot of the tasty treats Wilkerson sway. If he's feeling sad about losing the re tweet record with an estimated net worth over three point five billion dollars. So what this amounted to I think was like a nine hundred thousand dollar ad campaign. Yeah. I guess. So why don't you just? Repaid this out. He he pays the money out. I don't know if he's paid out yet because it gets there sorting through this fake accounts out there. Tinari going on here. So they're trying to sort that out still far as I can tell Zo town those oh town. Yes. They had a very good month. Very good promotion or something. So he's feeling good and want to give away some money that is something. Nice. Nice work out of him. I guess too bad for the guy. But I'm sure he's doing okay. Gordon with more of us owning video doorbells these days, we're bound to see some strange things on our doorsteps from time to time nonetheless. Neither though neither the homeowners nor police were quite prepared for what they saw on one surveillance tape over the weekend in California. A man named Robert Arroyo is facing charges after footage surfaced of repeatedly. Licking a homeowners intercom system in front of her house for hours. The homeowners says she was out of town at the time. But that her children were home. They were notified by the surveillance system when it detected movement near the front door. Authorities said they recognized Arroyo from the footage that he's now facing misdemeanor charges of prowling and violation of probation. He's also facing charges of theft after police accused him of stealing Christmas light extension cords at the home. So we had a busy couple of hours. They're licking doorbells. And then stealing extension cords, according to police houses tongue. Because if you're looking an intercom system for hours that would strike me as stressful. On like, one of the strongest muscles in your body. Not only that. But I would assume that doorbells are full germs. We'll touching the more. That didn't go well for his digestive system, gaps later didn't seem like a lot of bang for his buck like licking an intercom system doorbell system for hours, and then just winding up with a couple of extension cords. Yeah. Yeah. You would've thought he was done a little better than perhaps perhaps altogether in his right mind up for us. Thank you. Bye goodness.
