Oppenheimer will return to court on Wednesday afternoon to defend a motion to add to the list of defendants in its complaint against the Rhode Island Tobacco Settlement Financing Corporation, according to a source close to the situation and court documents.

The additional defendants would include the State of Rhode Island and the purchasers of $593 million of proposed tobacco refunding bonds, according to court documents. Wednesday's hearing was scheduled after the corporation objected to the proposed amendment to the complaint, which would also add to the list of causes of action.
