Drugmaker Endo to pay US$10 million to settle opioid lawsuit

REUTERS: Endo International Plc on Tuesday said it had agreed to pay US$10 million to avoid going to trial in October in a landmark case by two Ohio counties accusing various drug manufacturers and distributors of fueling the U.S. opioid epidemic.

Endo said as part of the agreement-in-principle it had reached with Cuyahoga and Summit counties, it had also agreed to provide up to US$1 million of two of its drug products free of charge.
