The lawsuit claims Summit County has been forced to spend a significant amount of money to combat the opioid epidemic locally, similar to the argument that is being made in hundreds of other cases.
The three legal firms representing the county, including Napoli Shkolnik PLLC, are working on a contingency fee agreement and will only be paid if the county is awarded money in the lawsuit. The legal counsel will be working closely with the Summit County Health Department throughout the course of the suit to understand the statistical impacts of the opioid epidemic on the county.
