No Delay

The State Supreme Court on Monday rejected a request by big drug makers to delay the state's upcoming trial against them in a lawsuit that accuses them of fueling the opioid epidemic. State Attorney General Mike Hunter says the Supreme Court made the right decision. "By refusing to review Judge Balkman's prior decision, we are still on track for trial, where we seek justice for Oklahomans who have been affected by the ongoing opioid epidemic," Hunter said.

The trial is scheduled to begin May 28 in Cleveland County District Court.
