We took an important step forward in securing justice for the tragic killing of an innocent young boy.

I want to thank our law enforcement partners and CADOJ's Special Operations Unit for their hard work on this case.

Nothing can erase the pain caused by losing a child, but we hope this day brings some measure of healing to Jasper Wu's family.

Jasper Wu was killed by a stray bullet fired by gang members engaged in a "rolling gun battle" on Interstate 880 on Nov. 6, 2021. Three of those men have been arrested, and one died last month.

Sobering report.

Our office launched an investigation into TikTok about the harms its platform can cause, and if it’s violating the law in promoting its platform to young people.

We have to protect the mental health of our kids.

TikTok starts recommending content tied to eating disorders and self-harm to 13-year-olds within 30 minutes of their joining the platform, according to a report.

We finalized the terms of a $6.6 Billion nationwide settlement with Allergan and Teva for their role in the opioid epidemic.

Our settlement will bring relief to our communities and requires Teva and Allergan to make significant changes to their business practices.

While nothing will bring back the lives lost to opioids, we are one step closer to holding the opioid industry accountable for its role in this crisis.

The first wave of checks from our $69M Provigil settlement is here!

6,000+ consumers will be compensated for paying higher costs for a widely prescribed wakefulness drug due to Teva's alleged anticompetitive conduct.

We won't let greedy drug companies cheat the system.

If you purchased Provigil, Nuvigil, or Modafinil between 2006 and 2012, you may be eligible for restitution, and can still file a late claim.

Make sure you file before Jan 9, 2023.

No one should have to scrimp and save to be able to afford medication.
