CBS12 Speaks with Hunter Shkolnik on $260M Opioid Settlement
October 22, 2019
Hunter Shkolnik, the attorney who won the settlement for Cuyahoga, is also the lead outside counsel for Palm Beach County in its suit against Big Pharma.
“We think we made the first good step, and we’ve set a pretty good benchmark, and I can’t imagine us asking for less if they’re going to wait that long to pay,” said Shkolnik, outside the federal courthouse in Ohio.
CBS12 News later reached Shkolnik by phone. He said he’s optimistic the settlement will serve as a benchmark for settlements of Palm Beach County’s suit, as well as others.
