Harford to begin interviewing law firms to pursue suit against opioid manufacturers, distributors

Harford County is moving forward with its lawsuit against opioid manufacturers and distributors but still has to work out its details, a county government spokesperson said this week.

A team of the county administration, including County Attorney Melissa Lambert and Director of Administration Billy Boniface, will be meeting over the next couple weeks with law firms to interview them and then make recommendations to Harford County Executive Barry Glassman about going forward with the lawsuit, Cindy Mumby said.

“This will determine which firm to use, which outside counsel,” she said.

In his State of the County Address in January, Glassman announced the county’s intention to file suit against opioid manufacturers and distributors for their alleged roles in spurring an abuse crisis that has reached epidemic proportions.
