LISTEN: AG William Tong On Why The Purdue Pharma Federal Settlement Is Flawed

Nov 18, 2020

A federal bankruptcy judge has approved an $8.3 billion settlement between Stamford’s Purdue Pharma and the U.S. Department of Justice. Connecticut is one of the states that brought suit against the drugmaker for its part in the opioid epidemic, and the state’s Attorney General, William Tong, has been outspoken in condemning the DOJ deal.

He joined Connecticut Public Radio’s All Things Considered to talk about that and another big case for the state: Apple has agreed to a $113 million settlement over its iPhone practices.
