Tong Alleges Intimidation in Purdue Pharma Bankruptcy Case

Attorney General William Tong

Attorney General William Tong on Friday accused the family behind OxyContin maker Purdue Pharma of trying to intimidate Connecticut and other states that last week opposed the company’s negotiated bankruptcy settlement.

Tong released a statement reacting to a motion on Thursday by the Raymond Sackler family, which asked the US bankruptcy court in southern New York state to impose sanctions on Connecticut as well as California, Maryland, in Rhode Island and Washington, DC

According to the attorney general’s office, the petition was served but was subsequently withdrawn and was never filed in court.
