Law360 Quotes Hunter Shkolnik on NY Opioid Trial
January 11, 2021
The state of New York is signaling that it is ready to push back against two Long Island counties’ bid to de-consolidate their joint trial against opioid makers in a closely watched case.
An attorney for Nassau County, Hunter Shkolnik of Napoli Shkolnik, told Law360 on Thursday, “We support the state of New York in fighting the pharmaceutical industry over the utter devastation caused by the industries’ grossly negligent conduct and hope we can stand alongside the state at the upcoming trial.”
“We are supportive of joint trial if the state can comply with the court rulings,” Shkolnik added.
