Native American tribes reach landmark opioid deal with Johnson & Johnson, drug distributors for up to $665 million – The Washington Post
More than six months after finalizing similar terms with states, counties and cities for $26 billion, McKesson, Cardinal Health and AmerisourceBergen reached a deal to pay $515 million over six years to the federally recognized tribes while Johnson & Johnson would distribute $150 million in two years, according to court documents filed Tuesday. More than 400 tribes sued the companies, claiming they were inundated with highly addictive painkillers manufactured by J&J and shipped by the distributors without regard for the clear signs of abuse and death. The companies deny wrongdoing, saying they complied with federal drug laws.
