Attorney General Dave Yost Statement on U.S. District Court Negotiating Class Ruling

(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost today issued the following statement regarding U.S. District Judge Daniel Polster’s ruling allowing the negotiation class in the opioid litigation before the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio:

“This process is fundamentally flawed because it binds people to buy a pig in a poke. Every community has to make a determination whether they’re in or out before they even know what the deal is. Local governments will have to make a big decision. And if they do nothing, that is their big decision – they’re in, whether it’s good, bad or ugly.”
