Seneca County Joins Opioid Lawsuit

1/31/18 – 4:30 A.M.

Seneca County is joining other northwest Ohio communities in suing opioid drug producers. The county commissioners voted yesterday to join the lawsuit against five drug makers and three drug wholesalers. They want to be reimbursed for the costs of handling the opioid epidemic, claiming the drug companies failed to warn the public about the addictive nature of the drugs.
