Jodi Avergun Featured on PBS Report on U.S. Opioid Crisis

Oct 18, 2017

White Collar Defense & Investigations leader Jodi Avergun was a featured commentator last week in a PBS NewsHour Weekend special report on the U.S. opioid crisis.

Avergun spent several hours explaining the intricacies and challenges of the opioid crisis to reporters of the public broadcasting program, and producers used some of her comments on air. Avergun, the only private-practice lawyer featured in the program, titled “America Addicted,” explained the differences between potential litigation around the current opioid crisis and the 1990s/2000s lawsuits against the tobacco industry.

The full PBS program can be found here. The segment featuring Avergun starts at the 7:25 mark.
