In at least a handful of blue states, a disturbing trend is emerging: Left-wing state attorneys general are acting less like legal representatives of their constituents and more like partisan political activists. Irrespective of whether "thuggish" is the right word to describe these invocations of legal authority, this trend is certainly cause for concern, especially since state AGs aren't the only ones playing politics with the law.
Several companies involved with the production of opioid-addiction medication Suboxone have been accused of violating Pennsylvania state and federal antitrust laws. Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals and Indivior allegedly conspired with MonoSol Rx to change Suboxone's formula in order to prevent the development of generic versions of the medication.
