CBS TV’s “CBS This Morning:” Decision Expected in Landmark Opioid Trial Against Johnson & Johnson

August 26, 2019

Although several defendants named in the 2017 filing settled out of court, Johnson & Johnson and Janssen made the decision to go to trial.

“When you’re right, you fight,” said partner Sabrina Strong. “And that’s what you’re seeing here. We have sympathy for those who suffer from substance abuse. But Janssen did not cause the opioid crisis in this country.”
