Well the libs got their wish. All the drug companies will soon be out of business.
Everybody losses on this one. The only winner is the bloated federal government by whose ever expanding tyranny is the REAL perp.
When the mostly unconstitutional government wins, We the People lose.
So will gun manufacturers
This sounds like a bullsh*t ruling.
Great news, unless you suffer debilitating pain. You’ll just have to suffer, or find a drug dealer on the street somewhere...
In both cases it will go underground.
Guess who increased the opioid production limits in 2012 by about 40%? DEA of course. Government is great at entrapment schemes.
Just wait till we see the drugged driving deaths from pot. It’s still schedule 1drug. Guess who will go to jail then?
I saw the AG out there, I assume, most of the people are Republicans suing them per State of OK. I read some article quite a while ago on J&J and this opioid epidemic. We will see. I remember some of the facts, not too favorable to them.
Bad precedent as this sets up gun and ammo makers as the next targets.
And beer, liquor & wine. “J.D. killed my son!”
I don’t like J&J due to their leftist views. Still this one is wrong.
Just notice the number of commercials being aired by law firms wanting to get their hands on the Monsanto Round Up lawsuits............
The Judiciary is destroying the country.
Monsanto did the same thing the asbestos makers did, agree to give a set amount of damages they would be liable for. And you can bet that the payouts are over time which means that Monsanto purchased an annunity so their actual cost is far less than the published amount.
Alcohol gun, and ammo makers have some statutory limited immunity, but we all know that the leftists will use these types of cases to challenge protections in addition to red flag laws.
The same thing for the states who won millions of dollars from the tobacco industry while their state hired attorneys collected millions simply for providing the information that was already garnered from the lawsuits down south.........
just like smoking...no matter what, it is not, never was, nor ever shall be the fault of the smoker....smokers, btw, ALWAYS get their breaks...
oh to be favored in this county.....
smokers/druggies favored.....overweight??...its your own darn fault you lazy cow...
I know we have some smart hackers. Found out how this “judge” did with regard to real (e.g. STEM) classes as an undergrad. (Science for poets and football players, no doubt.)
We already know the relationship between reality and liberal law.
Liberal law - “Spooky action at a distance.”
