If you think cases of foodborne illness and litigation are on the rise, you’re right. The CDC estimates 48-Million Americans a year suffer from foodborne illnesses, some more serious than others. On Ringler Radio, host Larry Cohen and Timothy D. Lytton, Associate Dean for Research & Faculty Development at Georgia State University College of Law, take a look at foodborne illness litigation, legislation, and food safety. 

Prescription opioids kill more Americans than car accidents. According to the CDC, six out of 1-thousand babies are born with opiate withdrawal resulting in longterm health problems. On Ringler Radio, host Larry Cohen and co-host, Heather Anderson talk with attorney Celeste Brustowicz, a member of Opioid Justice Team, about the legal work underway among a group of highly skilled attorneys, doctors and civil leaders on behalf of the babies in the opioid crisis.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that an alarming number of Americans now die from opioid overdoses – 145 every day. Litigation across the U.S. is claiming pharmaceutical companies are to blame, alleging deceptive marketing resulting in over-prescribing of opioid drugs. RinglerRadio host, Larry Cohen and Peter Early from Ringler discuss this crisis and litigation in New Hampshire with special guest, James T. Boffetti, Senior Assistant Attorney General in New Hampshire, including litigation against Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin, and the fight against the opioid epidemic.
