Napoli Quoted on Purdue’s Bankruptcy and Opioid Cases
October 4, 2019
In Ohio, where cases have been consolidated, a trial is set under U.S. District Judge Dan Aaron Polster for late October for claims from the state’s Cuyohoga and Summit counties. Napoli, who represents Cuyohoga County, said because of the pending bankruptcy, Purdue won’t be one of the defendants.
“It’s unlikely Purdue will ever be at trial again because of the bankruptcy filing,” Napoli said. “but they will certainly be made to pay.”
