Statement on Delaware’s rejection of Purdue Pharma settlement

Department of Justice | Department of Justice Press Releases | News | Date Posted: Thursday, September 12, 2019



Delaware, along with other states, is issuing the following additional statement on a settlement offer by Purdue Pharma:

A majority of states rejected the settlement proposed by Purdue and the Sacklers. We have heard the voices of families across the country calling for justice.  Purdue’s proposal does not provide anything close to the $10-12 billion that has been touted, nor does it provide the kind of accountability we feel is necessary.  We will continue our fight to reveal what this company and its executives and directors did, to shut them down, and to make them pay what they owe to our communities.
