“Opioid Litigation: Should Your City or Town Get Involved?” MMLA is pleased to announce a special program focusing on solicitations to join in litigation dealing with the opioid problem, and its implications for local governments. The program is scheduled to take place at The Publick House in Sturbridge on February 15th! — This program provides municipal attorneys with the latest information, issues and resources to assist in counseling your municipal client and responding to inquiries to engage in opioid litigation. Counsel from communities who have entered into agreements with outside counsel to pursue litigation will discuss municipal concerns on this important issue, how their fee agreements work, what their complaints consist of, and other issues of concern or interest. Panelists share their knowledge, experiences, and guidance in the decision-making process for their communities. Time is reserved for questions and answers. This program is restricted to MMLA members who are municipal attorneys. Attorney Lauren F. Goldberg of KP Law, a frequent presenter at MMLA programs, sums up reasons why you should plan to attend this program: “The opioid epidemic has reached a crisis level. Every municipality in Massachusetts is in some manner addressing the devastating impacts of this problem, from education to treatment, with costs being incurred by police, fire, public health, and school departments, among others. While this is a national issue, it is most definitely a local problem.” Click here for program details, schedule, and registration information.
