STATEMENT: Attorney General Moody Issues Statement on Multibillion-Dollar Agreement in Principle with Purdue Pharma

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Attorney General Ashley Moody today issued the following statement about a historic, multibillion-dollar agreement in principle with Purdue Pharma:

“After months of pursuing justice for Florida we have negotiated a historic, multibillion-dollar agreement in principle to hold Purdue Pharma responsible for its role in the national opioid epidemic. Sadly, this agreement cannot bring back those who have lost their lives to opioid abuse, but it will help Florida gain access to more life-saving resources and bolster our efforts to end this deadly epidemic. I want to assure Floridians that we will continue to aggressively pursue our state case against all remaining defendants.”
