Plevin & Gallucci Plays Key Role in National Opioids Litigation
Plevin & Gallucci represented the two Ohio county governments in the bellwether opioids trials recently held in Cleveland. The litigation has resulted in over $40 billion in settlements and an additional verdict of $650.6 million for the two Ohio counties.
Managing partner Frank L. Gallucci III was co-lead counsel for three bellwether plaintiffs, one that helped drive the initial $26 billion in settlements and two others that, in addition to yielding a verdict against CVS, Walgreens and Walmart, helped lead to just under $14 billion in national settlements with the same three defendants. This is the nation’s first trial attempting to hold pharmacies responsible for their role in the opioid crisis that has resulted in thousands of deaths and an addiction crisis that has heavily impacted Ohio.
Frank has frequently appeared in national media to discuss the opioid epidemic and national litigation. Watch this space for regular updates.

“I came to Plevin & Gallucci because I was in a car accident. I had medical bills and car repair bills and didn’t really know what to do with them. It’s stressful. It shakes you up when you get in a car accident and you don’t always know where to turn. It was nice to kind of hand it over and not have to worry about it from that point. I was so glad that I called Plevin & Gallucci because it was so easy and straight forward. I never thought I would be in that situation, but it worked out.“
