In This Episode

  • The DOJ announced an $8.3 billion settlement with Purdue Pharma yesterday for illegally marketing their painkiller Oxycontin. The settlement doesn’t prevent members of the Sackler family, who own Purdue Phrama, from criminal liability and there is still a criminal case pending.
  • Protests continue in Nigeria against a notorious police unit called SARS. Earlier this week, security forces fired on a crowd of protesters, reportedly killing several people and injuring others.
  • And in headlines: lawyers unable to find parents of 545 children who were separated under Trump immigration policy, Big Ten mayors ask conference organizers to be COVID-cautious, and another Quick Bites the dust.
