Two Ohio counties have asked a court to deny their state attorney general’s request to delay a major trial over the toll of opioids.

In their filing Wednesday with the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Cuyahoga and Summit counties argued the state doesn’t have a say in the matter because it’s not part of the federal case set for trial Oct. 21 in Cleveland.
