In a high profile opioid case, a federal judge has overturned, in part, convictions against executives at Insys Therapeutics, the maker of a liquid fentanyl painkiller called Subsys. U.S. District Court Judge Allison Burroughs in Boston ruled that prosecutors failed to prove that Insys violated the Controlled Substances Act.

The convictions for wire and mail fraud handed down in May against Insys Therapeutics founder John Kapoor and former executives Michael Gurry, Richard Simon, Sunrise Lee and Joseph Rowan, still stand.
