Katherine Stadler was mentioned in "Purdue Bankruptcy Shield Extended to Sacklers Through October" (Wall Street Journal)

Wall Street Journal
March 19, 2020

The judge overseeing Purdue Pharma LP’s bankruptcy shielded the OxyContin maker’s owners for another six months from lawsuits over the U.S. opioid crisis, saying that forcing them to defend themselves would disrupt settlement talks.

Wednesday’s ruling by Judge Robert Drain of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in White Plains, N.Y., extended the shield against litigation through October, against the wishes of state attorneys general who were seeking permission to resume lawsuits targeting members of Purdue’s controlling family, the Sacklers.
