When it comes to opioid lawsuits, Chairman Price says there is responsibility to go around
Price says each county should evaluate how to handle it at the local level: “If you really study these issues, there’s a shared level of responsibility up and down that spectrum from the manufactures to the prescribers to the distributors to the patients themselves”

concerned that trial lawyers are “unethically” recruiting clients to go after
big pharmaceutical companies.
