Attorney General James' Statement On Purdue Pharma Bankruptcy Filing

Attorney General James’ Statement on Purdue Pharma Bankruptcy Filing

NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today released the following statement following Purdue Pharma’s announcement to file for bankruptcy:

“It shouldn’t come as a shock that Purdue’s bankruptcy filing comes just 48 hours after my office exposed about $1 billion in wire transfers involving Swiss bank accounts. In no uncertain terms, any deal that cheats Americans out of billions of dollars, allows the Sacklers to evade responsibility, and lets this family continue peddling their drugs to the world is a bad one, which is why New York remains opposed to it. My office will not be deterred in its lawsuit against the Sackler family, and will continue fighting to make this family pay for the death and destruction they inflicted on the American people.”
