Attorney Jonathan Novak Explains the DEA’s Changing Enforcement Priorities in Response to the Opioid Crisis
Fears Nachawati trial lawyer Jonathan Novak was a special guest on a recent edition of the Lawyer 2 Lawyer podcast, where he provided background on the causes of the opioid epidemic and described legal strategies being used to hold pharmaceutical companies, distributers and other parties along the supply chain accountable. In litigation that seeks sweeping economic penalties for damages caused by opioid drugs, attorneys are using strategies successfully honed in the 1990s to hold tobacco companies accountable for damages caused by their products.
In this segment, Mr. Novak discusses how changing priorities with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency and powerful outside influence have made it difficult for authorities to regulate the industry.
