O’Melveny partner Steve Brody is pictured in this article addressing an Oklahoma court on behalf of client Johnson & Johnson in a case over its role in the state’s opioid crisis. In Judge Thad Balkman’s August 26 ruling, Johnson & Johnson was ordered to pay a one-time installment of US$572 million. In a follow-up judgment, Balkman revised his ruling, and “told the drugmaker to make a onetime payment of US$465 million.”
