Attorney General Tong Alleges Intimidation in Purdue Pharma Bankruptcy Case

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

Tong issued a statement reacting to a Thursday motion by the Raymond Sackler Family, which asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of Southern New York to impose sanctions on Connecticut along with California, Maryland, Rhode Island, and Washington, D.C.

According to the Attorney General’s office, the motion was served but later retracted and never filed in court.

In a sharply-worded press release, Tong called the motion a direct attack on Connecticut and a huge mistake.

“If these entitled thugs think they can ride off on their yachts clinging to their art and jewelry, they have another thing coming,” Tong said. “If there was any doubt, let me be incredibly clear – Connecticut will file our objection to the Purdue bankruptcy on Monday and we will fight until every viable option is exhausted.”
