Cleveland, Ohio (CNN) - Six drug companies accused in thousands of lawsuits over their role in the nation's opioid epidemic failed to reach a settlement with governments across the country, setting the stage for a high-profile trial Monday.
The six defendants include three pharmaceutical distribution companies — AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal Health, and McKesson Corporation — a smaller distributor called Henry Schein Medical, generic drug company Teva Pharmaceuticals and pharmacy chain Walgreens, according to court documents.
The talks lasted more than 10 hours and took place between the four distribution companies' CEOs, attorneys general from Tennessee, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Texas, and lawyers representing over 2,000 state, local and Native American tribal governments.
There were talks earlier this week with five companies settling for potentially settling for $50 billion, according to a source familiar with the negotiations.
I had just completed a framework evaluation and recommended that my team at G-Research use AngularJs. Not long after this I heard about an Angular conference being run on my doorstep in London.
AngularJs, and subsequently Angular, have proved a great success at G-Research and so I have been fortunate enough to keep coming back to AngularConnect, building up my t-shirt collection at the same time.
In the following weeks I booked a session to present at G-Research which gave me a deadline to complete my slides.
Many thanks to John Papa who spent a long time talking to myself and Naomi Meyer after this session.
Being a speaker at AngularConnect was an incredible privilege and hopefully I have helped others with my talk and 'expert' panel.
Finally a huge thank you to the team at AngularConnect for taking a risk on a first time speaker and enabling me to fulfil a dream!
