The West Virginia Supreme Court on Friday ruled that the state and cities’ claims in consolidated litigation that drug companies’ marketing of opioids created a public nuisance can proceed to trial before a jury.

“We are extremely pleased the West Virginia Supreme Court has stepped in and made clear our counties are entitled to go forward with a jury trial and that opioid pushing defendants must stop filing these frivolous appeals,” Hunter Shkolnik of Napoli Shkolnik PLLC, counsel for counties, told Law360 on Monday.
