One month after Warren County government tentatively stepped into the opioid lawsuit ring, it is bowing out. The county Budget and Finance Committee voted to hold off on an agreement with Galligan & Newman, Attorneys at Law to represent the county in a lawsuit against opioid manufacturers. Committee members are waiting on a judge’s ruling that could make or break a similar lawsuit filed by District Attorney General Lisa Zavogiannis.
