Judge says he miscalculated award by $  107M in opioid caseAn Oklahoma judge on Tuesday acknowledged making a nearly $ 107 million miscalculation in determining how much drug maker Johnson & Johnson must pay the state to help address the state’s opioid crisis. Following a hearing in Cleveland County, District Judge Thad Balkman acknowledged making the error in his August judgment in which he ordered the consumer products giant to pay the state $ 572 million to address the opioid crisis. Balkman said the actual amount he should have included in his judgment was $ 107,000 to help the state develop a program for treating babies born addicted to opioids.
