BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
(Reuters) — Endo International PLC, Johnson & Johnson and other drugmakers that face litigation over the opioid crisis are exploring a way to settle the cases by participating in Purdue Pharma LP’s bankruptcy, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing internal documents and a person familiar with the matter.
Five drugmakers battling the cases — Endo, J&J, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., Allergan PLC and Mallinckrodt PLC — are looking to enact a global settlement of the litigation that would be implemented through Purdue’s Chapter 11 case, the WSJ reported citing a person familiar with the matter.
The mechanism, if successful, would allow the companies to contribute money into a trust set up through the bankruptcy in exchange for a complete release from liability, according to the report.
OxyContin maker Purdue filed for bankruptcy protection in September, succumbing to pressure from more than 2,600 lawsuits alleging the company helped fuel the deadly U.S. opioid epidemic.
Purdue, Mallinckrodt, Endo, J&J, Teva and Allergan were not immediately available to Reuters’ requests for comment.
