Trial Date Set In Opioid Lawsuit

State Attorney General Mike Hunter says he appreciates Judge Thad Balkman's urgency getting the case to trial. "Rather than dragging it out longer, which is what the drug companies had requested, Oklahomans who have suffered immeasurably from the years of fraudulent marketing campaigns will see this case resolved sooner rather than later," Hunter said.
