The opioid manufacturer company said the settlements with Cuyahoga and Summit counties include no admission of liability and removes the Johnson and Johnson from the federal trial scheduled to begin this month in the Northern District of Ohio, according to a news release.
"The settlement allows the company to avoid the resource demands and uncertainty of a trial as it continues to seek meaningful progress in addressing the nation’s opioid crisis," Johnson and Johnson said. ■
