A Massachusetts judge ruled on Monday that the state's lawsuit against Purdue Pharma for allegedly helping spawn the opioid crisis should be released in full to the public. Previous versions of the suit, which have already provided  new details about how the company marketed its blockbuster OxyContin painkiller, contained portions that were redacted. The complete document could shed light on decisions made by Purdue's board and how much money company executives made. The decision from Judge Janet Sanders in Suffolk County Superior Court came in response to a motion filed by media organizations, including STAT and the Boston Globe, to release the full lawsuit, which was originally filed by Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey in June.
