A Vermont town’s select board has voted to work with a national law firm that plans to sue opioid makers over the drug crisis.
The Bennington Banner reports Bennington will not have to pay for litigation as part of the agreement with Sanford Heisler Sharp.
Instead, the law firm said they would accept 25 per cent of the damage from the opioid producers and 75 per cent would return to the community.
Sanford Heisler Sharp said he would work to collect data to determine the cost of the drug crisis in Bennington. If the costs are big enough, the law firm opens a case in the state court.
The firm said its lawyers have started similar discussions with other Vermont communities, including Manchester and Rutland.
