A judge will decide the final fate of Purdue Pharma, the drugmaker behind OxyContin, in a bankruptcy court on Wednesday.

A coalition of state attorneys general oppose the bankruptcy because of how it would shield the Sackler family, which owned Purdue Pharma, from further prosecution for their role in fueling the opioid crisis.

Here & Now's Scott Tong checks in with NPR addiction correspondent Brian Mann.

This segment aired on September 1, 2021.
