A landmark federal trial against opioid manufacturers and distributors begins today in Cleveland, Ohio. The trial comes as last-minute talks for a $50 billion settlement collapsed Friday. Now a jury will decide who should bear the cost of the opioid epidemic, which has killed at least 400,000 people over the last two decades. Over 2,000 cities and counties have sued manufacturers and distributors over the opioid epidemic.
