The A.H. Robins Co. is "out of control" and has violated court orders, the Justice Department said in asking to U.S. Bankruptcy Court to appoint a trustee to run the company. Assistant U.S. Atty. S. David Schiller said in court papers filed in Richmond, Va., that Robins had engaged in fraudulent and dishonest conduct in violating two court orders against paying part of its debts without prior court approval. The court must firmly penalize the arrogance evidenced by these payments, Schiller said.
