A new development in the proposed opioid lawsuit involving Warren County government will be revealed Monday.

County Commissioner Terry Bell announced during a county Budget and Finance Committee meeting Thursday that a discussion with Warren County attorney Larry Stanley and assistant attorney Robert Bratcher has been scheduled for Monday, Feb. 5 at 4:30 p.m.

Galligan & Newman is seeking to represent county government in a lawsuit against opioid manufacturers.

Commissioners are slated to decide during February’s monthly session if they wish to hire the law firm.

The actual topic of discussion is being withheld in true cloak-and-dagger fashion.
Commissioner Gary Prater asked, “Is this the same thing?”

“Yes,” said Bell. “There is some information that you need to know.”

Prater added, “So, it’s not that they want to do the lawsuit. It’s they’ve got some information?”

“They’ve got some information that you need to know,” said Bell. “They want to inform you so you’ll know what you’re doing.”

The meeting will be held in the conference room at the administrative offices on Locust Street.
