Oklahoma City A US judge has reduced a payment obligation imposed on Johnson & Johnson due to the opioid crisis. The consumer goods manufacturer must pay the state of Oklahoma $ 465 million (421 million euros), $ 107 million less than set in the summer, Thad Balkman decided on Friday.
He had miscalculated; The cost of developing a program to treat addicted infants was estimated at $ 107,000 instead of $ 107 million, Balkman said. Johnson & Johnson lawyers announced an appeal.
