The long-sought deposition of Richard Sackler

The deposition transcript of Dr. Richard Sackler, a member of the billionaire family that owns Purdue Pharma, the makers of OxyContin, has been published by STAT and ProPublica. The deposition is believed to be the only time a member of the Sackler family has been questioned under oath about the illegal marketing of OxyContin and how much the Sackler family knew about it. The 337-page deposition transcript from 2015 had remained sealed until ProPublica obtained a copy. Sackler has worked at Purdue Pharma since 1971 and has served as its president and co-chairman of its board. While the transcript has been released, hundreds of other Purdue documents and a videotape of the 2015 deposition remain sealed, ProPublica says. Meanwhile, Time has more on the charges that are piling over OxyContin and what that could mean for the Sackler family.
