After Jaron Thomas died in police custody, his family is now filing a federal wrongful death lawsuit against the Columbus Division of Police.

The attorneys general of 41 U.S. states said Tuesday that they're banding together to investigate the makers and distributors of powerful opioid painkillers that have, over the past decade, led to a spike in opiate addictions and overdose deaths.

Several states are suing the Trump administration to block it from terminating the program protecting young immigrants known as DREAMers.

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in the Eastern District of New York, was brought by the attorneys general of 15 states and the District of Columbia. All are Democrats.

It follows the administration's announcement Tuesday that it would phase out the Obama-era program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said DACA would end in March 2018 unless Congress takes action to salvage it.

Attorney General Mike DeWine filed a lawsuit against five drug companies on Wednesday, May 31. He believes evidence will show that these drug companies used deceptive methods to sell their products to doctors and patients.

DeWine says these methods caused thousands of Ohioans to become addicted to painkillers.  In 2015, Ohio was first in the nation for the number of opioid deaths.

Today we will talk about Ohio's lawsuit and the opioid crisis.
