Lawyers for two Ohio counties have asked a federal judge to exclude 39 unvaccinated jurors from an Oct. 4 trial that seeks to hold several pharmacies accountable for the opioid crisis.

The plaintiffs’ request, in a Sept. 21 bench brief, comes as lawyers are winnowing down a venire panel from which to choose jurors for the in-person trial in Cleveland. The case alleges public nuisance claims against four defendants, including Walmart and Walgreens.
