Tennessee Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery III announced two actions today. First, Slatery said he has joined a coalition of 48 attorneys general in pushing federal regulators to examine recent progress in the fight against opioid abuse. The group is asking for a progress report on recent steps taken by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to combat the opioid crisis, given new authorities Congress granted the agency in 2018. In a second announcement, Slatery said his office has entered into a national settlement with Sabre Corporation that resolves a 2017 data breach of the company’s hotel booking system. The breach exposed the data of approximately 1.3 million credit cards. The settlement requires a payment of $2.4 million. Tennessee will receive $61,909.08 as well as injunctive relief.
