By Charlie Ban, National Association of Counties

Hundreds of county and city lawsuits aimed at collecting damages from opioid painkiller manufacturers and distributors have landed in the Cleveland, Ohio courtroom of U.S. District Judge Daniel Polster. In December 2017, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation consolidated more than 200 cases scattered in courts across the country and sent them to the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division and Judge Polster.
