N.Y. jury holds drug firm Teva liable in opioid crisis


New York’s attorney general says a jury has held Teva Pharmaceut­icals responsibl­e for contributi­ng to the opioid crisis by delivering a verdict in a sweeping lawsuit filed by the state. Attorney General Letitia James’ office said Thursday that the Suffolk County jury found the company played a role in furthering a public nuisance. A message seeking comment was sent to a lawyer for Teva. The company was the sole manufactur­ing defendant left in the suit after settlement­s had been reached with other parties. Thousands of lawsuits have been filed in connection to the nation’s deadly opioid crisis.
