New York's attorney general is announcing a $ 1.1 billion settlement with three major opioid distributors. Cardinal Health, McKesson Corporation and Amerisource Bergen have agreed to pay up with the money going to opioid-ravaged communities for treatment, recovery and prevention efforts. The agreement removes those distributors from the ongoing opioid trial in Suffolk County. Attorney General Letitia James says the settlement holds these companies accountable for the opioids that have killed hundreds of thousands of people in New York and the rest of the nation and the millions more who've become addicted.
