More than 400 inmates released from Oklahoma prisons
"This is a very interesting story coming out of Oklahoma yesterday they had over four hundred inmates released after a loss signed this year retro actively reduce the sentences for prisoners who had committed low level crimes it's a very interesting thing especially for Oklahoma we're about one in every hundred Oklahoma adults is locked up at any given time they have a pretty big prison population out there the governor governor state is trying to cut that back to save some money and get people who maybe shouldn't be behind bars for that long a time get them out back into a real life so what I find out about this really a neat deal put on by governor Kevin state that his wife Sarah yeah he must've had carpal tunnel syndrome developing him to sign all E. I think paperwork for each one of these people than me yeah yeah he did then there's more to sign to you know four hundred and fifty nonviolent inmates released yesterday there still some processing work on dozens of other by the time this thing is done as far as this computation goes will be over five hundred people that were released because of this effort so I think they had on average been about three years behind bars for most of these people most them getting out maybe one and a little over a year early and the states just not they're not just pushing him out the door they're they're providing some help aren't they yeah yeah these were low level mainly low level drug crimes may and do what they're doing is giving them the resources to succeed so yesterday during the ceremony there was somebody from a non profit there in fact this was a man who was a former inmate himself who had a second chance himself he was there speaking with the inmates about some of the resources available to them saying that his nonprofit group would be there to help them apply for jobs to help them get those job interviews anything they need this nonprofit group would be there the First Lady of Oklahoma Serra state she had job fairs for these individuals before they were released because she said she thought it was really great that they were going to get released but didn't want to just throw them out in the wild and then three months later they'd be right back in jail that's the other step of this it's not just the release it's the ability to choose to be self sufficient after the release that's the big part of what's going on here in Oklahoma it's very interesting because sometimes the little things that you might not think of a very important I note that that the state made an effort to make sure that these inmates are released with the state issued driver's license or identification card because if you want to get a job or housing or a lot of other things related to you know having any kind of a successful life you need this kind of identification and you wouldn't think just like a little card like that could be so important but apparently it's important enough for the state made an effort to make sure that these that the these people are walking out of the jail with you know with with the card in hand to help them off right away so it's an interesting thing where we had right and left coming together to do this now how I mean how did this this was done by a ballot referendum a hot hot how did all this happen yeah you know there wasn't much backlash about this at all this is an issue that Oklahoma has faced for a long time as far as you know you gave the statistics there and they're pretty startling is the number of Oklahomans that the order of course rated at one point in their life and you know this is nothing new to governor Kevin state either he's rude worked on reducing overcrowding in state prison since he took over as governor even before that in the state of Oklahoma so no surprise for Democrats or Republicans in that state there were some technicalities that made this possible there was a law passed this year that made it easier to review the sentences of inmates who had been charged with crimes that would not be considered felonies and back in twenty sixteen the state passed reforms that term some low level felonies in the misdemeanor so we're all set up this was all planned it was all in the works and it finally came together and it resulted in the release of four hundred and fifty inmates so I know that there also now discussing some changes to the criminal justice system out there which I I guess looking toward the future would die keep the the you know the jails and prisons from being clogged up again so do you know a black if there's anything actually planned in the legislature at this point yeah I think right now it's all in the works it would be the best way to say it they they know that there's an issue in Oklahoma as far as the number of people who are being locked up but I think the step in twenty sixteen to turn some low level felonies and misdemeanors was one big step toward that there may be other movies that similar to that is they come up fire upon the next legislative session no specifics yet but this is a continued effort in Oklahoma a state as you said that has a lot of people on average incarcerated yeah I I see that the the local chapter of the American civil liberties union has put out some things that they would like to stay to do I guess to get the state legislature to pass including changes to laws that require some repeat offenders to automatically be no get harsher punishment no matter what the circumstances might be and so the the ACLU is saying that if you want to reduce the prison population you need to to deal with the sentencing at what they call sentencing enhancements and and that would go a step so that mean that that's where it's going to probably get a little more difficult I mean no you can it's probably easier to agree on okay these people they weren't violent their low level they'll be better served getting out of prison and into back into real life but then when you have to look ahead now how do we deal with criminal justice in the future that's where it gets difficult so you know on I suppose that we can hope that the good feeling on both sides working together to come together and pass something like this can continue and maybe they can maybe they can lead the nation as we try to deal with our our criminal justice population

Johnson & Johnson Ordered to Pay $572 Million in Landmark Opioid Trial
"So this is a landmark and defendants johnson and johnson and johnson's misleading marketing and promotion of tate's created a nuisance as defined by fifty s section one including finding that those actions compromise compromised the health and safety of thousands of oklahomans. It's the first time that a judge as ever held a drug company responsible responsible for the opioid epidemic lenny bernstein covers health and medicine for the post. He was in the courtroom in oklahoma yesterday. When a judge ruled that johnson johnson johnson will have to pay five hundred and seventy two million dollars for its role in the opioid crisis. He ruled that johnson and johnson. Jason took part in a campaign of misinformation deception that persuaded doctors and opioid consumers that these drugs dogs were less addictive than they really were and more helpful than they really were. He ruled that johnson and johnson because because it owned two companies for awhile that produced the active ingredients for opioids and sold them to other companies which which then turn them into drugs was responsible all of this despite the fact that johnson and johnson's own drugs account for just about one one percent of the opioids prescription opioids consumed in oklahoma city their argument is that they can't have played such a major role in the opioid epidemic amac but this judge found otherwise yes that was one of their arguments they made several but yes that that's the key right there they're saying how can we be held old culpable and asked to pay five hundred seventy two million dollars to clean this up if our drugs were only one percent of the opioids in oklahoma that is certainly one of the things that they will bring up on appeal so this five hundred and seventy two million dollars that johnson and johnson has been ordered to pay hey. Where is that money going well first off. We have to remember that. No one's gonna see that money probably for years if johnson and johnson does carry harry through on its promise to appeal they'll go up to the oklahoma supreme court i and that could take a couple of years and if they lost their they go to the u._s. Supreme court and that could take another couple of years typically the payment of the money would be stayed all that occurs. If by some miracle they turned around tomorrow and wrote a check either for five seventy two or something less than that it would be going to treatment it would be going to prevention education law enforcement emergency services. There are babies babies born dependent on opioids who need all kinds of care. There are children in foster care whose parents are unable to take care of them and so the state is taking care of them. All of those places would get some money and for the attorneys for the state of oklahoma and did did they feel like this five hundred and seventy two million dollars was what what they were looking for that. It's enough to take care of a lot of the problems saito seen so. This is probably the most interesting thing that happened yesterday. The the state of oklahoma asked for seventeen point five billion over thirty years so if you look at five hundred seventy two million <hes> it's a much smaller amount now now a judge bachmann said was i can tell that for the first year it's going to cost five hundred seventy two million to take care of this crisis what the state did not present me with sufficient evidence to decide is what happens after that. I just can't tell so. The number is much smaller than what the state asked for but it's a one in your number of course the opioid epidemic is not going to be abated one year. It's going to take decades and what what's really interesting about. This is the fact that this is just one line of many legal cases that are starting to come up against drug companies blaming them and holding them responsible for the opioid crisis so how what is this ruling in oklahoma effect what we might be seeing in these other legal cases against other drug companies around the country so we've got two sets of cases going foreword. We've got another forty some odd states that are suing any number of drug companies just like oklahoma and then we have cities counties native american tribes hospitals other groups numbering somewhere around two thousand plaintiffs and they are all consolidated in a federal case in cleveland so let's put that aside for a second looking at the state cases you would expect okay oklahoma one using these theories to the extent that that is possible under each state law you would expect that state to adopt as much of the strategy that oklahoma used as possible because after all it's a winning strategy at least here however we did have a case in north dakota in may where the judge threw out a similar claim against purdue and said that doesn't work here so while this is a landmark it subject to the vagaries of different states different laws different defendants <hes> on the state level now i will say that if a judge is willing to find a company liable and they only produce one percent of the drugs consumed in a state you might be encouraged by that because if you're suing mallon qrat if you're suing purdue if you're suing any of the larger manufacturers you might be thinking to yourself today. A boy johnson and johnson was held liable and they only produced one percent of drugs. I've got a guy who produced twenty or thirty percent of the drugs or a company that distributed twenty or thirty thirty percent of the drugs moving over to the federal lawsuit. It's much less certain. Federal cases are different from state cases and those are cities and counties rather than states so i think we should be cautious in the amount of influence with tribute <hes> to the federal cases so for the lawyers who were fighting on behalf of the seat of oklahoma. Uh what was the strategy or the legal argument that they were making that ended up being successful so oklahoma had one claim and one claim only they claimed that the drug companies and eventually it just became johnson johnson has they settled with a couple of others that that the drug companies created a public nuisance in the state of oklahoma that affected the health and wellbeing of every resident of the state public nuisance law aw is generally used for property problems is i am sledding your backyard with my sprinkler system. If if a polluter is polluting river if a brothel is creating a nuisance on the street and and we wanted shut down you go to the the court and you claim that it's a public nuisance and the remedy is that the court makes you stop it. Make me stop flooding your backyard. They closed down the brothel. They make the polluter stop. Stop putting stuff into the river. The lawyers here took a very novel approach to public nuisance. Lie may be unprecedented which they said said because public nuisance covers the health and well being of the residents of the state of oklahoma. We are claiming that johnson and johnson violated the public nuisance law because they affected the health of everyone here. Now oklahoma has a broad public nuisance law many other states and cities and counties. He's also have public nuisance laws but vary so it's not entirely certain whether that argument would work in other places but were tear when you look at the ruling from this case and the legal arguments that are being made in these other cases against companies that are being accused of fueling the opioid crisis. What do you think is the big question. That's being asked here the big question that's being thought about here in terms of culpability ability so anybody who even opens their eyes or reads the newspaper or watches television asian knows that we had a prescription opioid epidemic in this country for many years and it still continues today it. It may be a little bit on wayne but it happened and many thousands tens of thousands of people died. The question is can you prove to
