Reuters ahead on reporting Sacklers boost opioid settlement offer to $4.3 billion

Health

Reuters was well ahead of the competition reporting that members of the Sackler family, who own Purdue Pharma LP, have offered roughly $4.3 billion to resolve sprawling opioid litigation, up from $3 billion initially proposed in settlement discussions underway in the OxyContin maker’s bankruptcy proceedings. Settlement negotiations are ongoing and no final agreement, including on how much the Sacklers will pay, has yet been reached among the family members, Purdue and U.S. communities suing over the opioid crisis.
