The Illinois Public Risk Fund’s (IPRF) request to send the IPRF’s opioid lawsuit back to Cook County Circuit Court was granted by U.S. District Judge Matthew F. Kennelly on July 15, 2019, the Cook County Record reports. The organization, which helps Illinois local governments pool their workers’ compensation insurance, is pursuing its own legal claims against the makers and distributors of opioid painkillers.
