Hunter Shkolnik of Napoli Shkolnik PLLC, who represents plaintiffs in the MDL, said that at this point in the epidemic — which caused average U.S. life expectancy to drop in 2015 and 2016, according to federal researchers — no company will want to be the one that keeps marketing opioids directly to physicians.
