AG office considers judge’s decision to take pharmaceutical companies to trial a huge victory

BRETT: THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SEES THIS AS A HUGE VICTORY. IT APPEARS THIS CASE IS NOW MOVING FORWARD. COCOUNSEL HOPES THIS DOES NOT GO ON FOR YEARS. IN THE LAWSUIT AGAINST MULTIPLE PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL ALLEGES THAT DRUG COMPANIES DOWNPLAYED AND MISREPRESENTED OPIOID RISK. >> THEY SAID YOU NEED TO PRESCRIBE OPIOIDS MORE. THEY ARE NOT ADDICTIVE. THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED. BRETT: DURING ARGUMENTS THE STATE SHOWED THIS EXHIBIT, AND LAWYERS FOR THE STATE SAY THERE IS A DIRECT CORRELATION BETWEEN THE MARKETING CAMPAIGN AND THE SPIKE OF DEATHS IN OKLAHOMA AND ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
