First Opioid Trial Takes Aim at Johnson & Johnson
"Oklahoma is employing, a high risk legal strategy in the first trial against Johnson and Johnson over sales of it's addictive. Opioid painkillers seeking billions of dollars for costly public health crisis. Oklahoma attorney general, Mike hunter opened the trial by accusing J J of greed in helping create widespread addiction, nor centuries of experience well-documented scientific histories of deadly addiction academics and embarked on a cynical deceitful, multimillion dollar brainwashing campaign to establish opioid analgesics as the magic drug. Joining is Erik Gordon. A professor at the university of Michigan law school, Eric Teva settled, Purdue former settled why didn't J J settle? I think JJ thinks they have the strongest case that the case against them from Oklahoma is certainly a lot weaker than. Sort of the real bad guy here, or the, the putative, bad guy Purdue, where there's, there's lots of very specific evidence of, of marketing practices that, you know, look pretty bad the evidence against Johnson and Johnson doesn't seem to be as extensive or specific. And also, there's a huge difference in the in the amount of drugs of these opioids, J and J has sold versus Purdue. So I think overall downton Johnson thinks, perhaps, the three companies have Purdue, and Johnson and Johnson. They have the best chance of winning now, Oklahoma is relying on one legal theory, public nuisance law. Tell us about that theory and the problems of the Homa may have with it. That's really interesting because, you know, they started off with lots of theories deceptive trade practices and fraud. And then pretty much the last minute, they dropped all of them, but. Public nuisances and, and it's, it's a semi creative use of public nuisance. Because the classic idea about public nuisance is things like, you know, you're admitting noxious fumes that are affecting the public as a whole or one of my favorites since I live in a college town is the house full of college students that put these huge speakers outside in the middle of the night is boom, boom, boom music, nobody can sleep, so you get the place close as a public nuisance. The idea that the plying these opioids constitutes a public nuisance is pretty creative. And I think it's not a clear cause of action. It's going to be a tough one, but, you know, it has worked June. I mean, they, they used it in the big tobacco settlement, which was a huge settlement. They've used it against the gun manufacturers where pretty much hasn't worked. So I think it's going to be a test of that, that approach North Dakota tried it and. The judge North Dakota said, now this isn't the public nuisance. It might be something else. But it's not a public nuisance. So this is going to be a very interesting case to watch, how much is this case going to be a pattern for the cases that come after it? Yes. So since it's the first one that's actually going to trial in, in front of a fact finder, not going in front of a jury it's going in front of a judge. But it'll be watched very closely. I think if John J wins, it's gonna put a lot of pressure on other plaintiffs to settle. If JJ loses. I don't think it's the end for J and J. I think they will continue to defend other
