April 17, 2020
Purdue Pharma LP on Wednesday asked a New York bankruptcy judge to reject a bid by pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies who are co-defendants in the New York opioid trial to include the OxyContin maker on the verdict form, saying that it could upset negotiations for a global settlement.
“The manufacturers, chain pharmacies and distributors who were once Purdue’s allies and co-conspirators are now desperately seeking any possible way to deflect blame from themselves for the opioid crisis,” Hunter Shkolnik of Napoli Shkolnik PLLC told Law360 on Thursday. “Purdue is correct, this fight between them and the co-defendants should stay in bankruptcy court.”
