They falsified data, bribed physicians, led a campaign of disinformation...

They made $81.6 billion in sales in 2018, which works out to $1.57 billion per week, $224 million per day.

This is 2 days of earnings for what amounts to a huge medical fraud resulting in the poisoning of 20 million Americans, millions more having to cope with damaged family members, millions more who now have to jump through hoops to get the opiates they actually need for pain-management, and probably a trillion or more in taxpayer dollars to deal with the fallout for the next several decades.

Interesting story about the judge in the case.

His childhood home was used for filming Ferris Bueller house.

And he went to high school with Snoop Dogg.

It will get reduced on appeal, it almost always is.

and this overnight, We will appeal... J&J attorney

Quote
CNBC -
J&J said the decision in the case is “flawed” and that the state “failed to present evidence that the company’s
products or actions caused a public nuisance in Oklahoma.”

“Janssen did not cause the opioid crisis in Oklahoma, and neither the facts nor the law support this outcome,”
Johnson & Johnson general counsel Michael Ullmann said in a statement. “We recognize the opioid crisis
is a tremendously complex public health issue and we have deep sympathy for everyone affected.
We are working with partners to find ways to help those in need.”

Another item of note: This award would only pay for about a year's worth of programs treating opiate addictions in Oklahoma.
