Published on August 30, 2019

Watch McIntyre Law’s Noble McIntyre weigh in and offer legal analysis on the results of this landmark opioid trial.

On Monday, August 26th, District Judge Thad Balkman ruled in favor of the State of Oklahoma in a widely publicized opioid trial. Balkman’s ruling came in the first case to go to trial in a list of pending lawsuits claiming that opioid manufacturers are liable for the harm caused by the US’s opioid crisis.

Judge Thad Balkman awarded the State of Oklahoma $572 million, to be paid by defendant Johnson & Johnson. This award falls well short of what the State of Oklahoma originally asked for in the opioid case, $17.2 billion.
