In The New York Times, Professor Pollis spoke about the advantages plaintiffs may have in an important opioid lawsuit headed to court in the Northern District of Ohio, which will be used as a “bellwether,” or test case, for other suits filed. In this video, Professor Pollis elaborates on the article and shares how the opioid crisis impacts the nation, but states, like Ohio can help achieve even a global settlement.
