Re: US States v. Big Pharma; Re Opioids Liability

The more apt question is whether the bankruptcy trustee will determine that the Sacklers have been engaged in fraudulent conveyance by wiring money out of the company and into various entities that they control. That kind of bankruptcy fraud isn't criminal, but it is civilly actionable. Even a crim...

Particularly in light of Tucker Carlson calling him "a man of the left" and "a t...
