CVS Pharmacy will Pay $14 Million to Settle CA Lawsuit

Butte is one of 44 California counties that recently settled its ongoing lawsuit with CVS Pharmacy Incorporated over the illegal disposal of hazardous waste. CVS Pharmacy will pay nearly $14 million. Authorities say a Ventura County judge approved the settlement Wednesday. The Rhode Island-based chain came under investigation two years ago after allegations that it mishandled medical, pharmaceutical and photographic waste at California stores over a seven-year period. The $13.75 million settlement will be shared by prosecutors, fire and environmental health departments from some 45 cities and counties.
