In re National Opiate Litigation
(Oh., filed January 8, 2024): Arguing that the Ohio Product Liability Act, as amended in 2005 and
2007, supersedes this Court’s divided opinion in City of Cincinnati v. Beretta U.S.A. Corp. and
clarifies that Ohio recognizes public nuisance’s traditional limits and does not allow “any public nuisance claim or cause of action at common law in which it is alleged that the . . . sale of a product unreasonably interferes with a right common to the general public.” Public nuisance has traditionally been limited to conduct that interferes with the use of real property and the Ohio General Assembly has confirmed that public nuisance does not extend to the sale of lawful products. The federal district court’s decision contravenes settled nuisance law and will wreak havoc on Ohio businesses if it is not repudiated.
