DA to research joining opioid lawsuits

The Board of Nye County Commissioners on January 16 authorized the District Attorney to solicit Request for Proposals from law firms to associate with the county to institute legal action against opioid drug manufacturers and distributors; and also authorized the County Manager and DA to jointly select one or more law firms from submitted proposals to present to the commission.
District Attorney Angela Bello submitted the agenda item.
The presentation provided by the one or more law firms would set forth the legal/litigation issues involved, the status of litigation already filed by local governments, the status of litigation filed by government entities in state and federal courts and provide relevant information regarding the hundreds of lawsuits filed against opioid drug manufacturers and distributors as well as the services the law firms may provide. The Board would have to approve a proposal before the county could pursue legal action.
