Torrens Blasts Attorney General Pam Bondi for Delay in Suing Big Pharma

TAMPA, Fla – April 10, 2018 – Ryan Torrens, Democratic candidate for Florida Attorney General, blasted Attorney General Pam Bondi for her delay in holding the big pharmaceutical companies accountable for misleading marketing and advertising of addictive opioid prescription painkillers.

“These big pharmaceutical executives are the real drug pushers. They should not only be sued but also criminally investigated for their illegal scheme to get Floridians hooked on these drugs. They knew these opioid painkillers are highly addictive and they lied about it, all to maximize their profits at our expense,” said Torrens.

“Mike DeWine, the Republican Attorney General of Ohio, filed suit against the big pharmaceutical companies for their illegal practices almost a year ago. Pam Bondi says she’s still looking for counsel, even though numerous Florida cities and counties have already lawyered up and filed suit,” said Torrens.

“This is just another example of why we so desperately need a change in direction in our attorney general’s office. For too long, we have followed a double-standard: everyday people are held accountable but big executives and corporate donors get off because they can buy off politicians. It’s time we finally enforce one set of rules in this state” said Torrens.

Torrens has been campaigning across the State of Florida while fighting for his clients as a consumer protection lawyer. He says he is running to put the Attorney General’s office back on the side of our consumers again.

Thank you for visiting our page! I am a consumer protection attorney who defends Florida homeowners in foreclosure and sues big banks, debt collectors, and other big corporations for ripping people off.

On June 1, 2017, I announced my candidacy for Florida Attorney General. Believing that how much justice you get should not depend on how much money you have, I ran on a platform of fighting for everyday Floridians and standing up to big corporate interests. During our 15 month campaign, I followed through on our pledge to refuse even one penny in big corporate campaign contributions. Though we fell short, we are proud of the grassroots campaign we ran and over 365,000 Floridians joined our cause and voted for our campaign. On election night, I promised to never stop fighting and I asked you to never stop fighting! So in this connection, we are going to keep this page - what used to be our campaign Facebook page - up and running. I am going to be focusing on the causes I’m most passionate about - fighting for our consumers, advocating for addiction recovery, and doing everything I can to make sure we advance a progressive, pro-people agenda here in Florida!
