Opioid Litigation

P.A. 102-0085

On and after a specified date, no local government may file or become a party to opioid litigation against an opioid defendant that is subject to a national multistate opioid settlement unless approved by the Attorney General. If counties representing 60% of the population of the State, including all counties with a population of at least 250,000, have agreed to an intrastate allocation agreement with the Attorney General, then the Attorney General has the authority to appear or intervene in any opioid litigation, and release with prejudice any claims brought by a local government against an opioid defendant that are subject to a national multistate opioid settlement and pending on a specified date.
