Senator Warren Statement on Supreme Court Decision on Purdue Pharma

Washington, D.C.  – Today, following the Supreme Court’s decision on Harrington v. Purdue Pharma L.P., Senator Elizabeth Warren released the following statement:

“The Sackler family made a fortune from hooking people to opioids that killed hundreds of thousands of Americans, and then tried to use the bankruptcy system to keep their money. The Supreme Court closed this bankruptcy loophole, but that doesn’t make things right for the millions of people who have lost loved ones to opioid overdoses. This is a first step towards accountability for the Sackler family. It’s time for the Sacklers to pay up.”
