On September 13, 2023, David Goldman will moderate a panel discussion at a Rhode Island Bar Association (RIBA) event. His panel is titled “A National and Local Perspective on Opioid Litigation” and will take place from 12:30pm – 2:00pm.
The presentation explores the Rhode Island and national opioid litigation—arguably the largest and most complex litigation in Rhode Island and national history. Panelists include outside counsel for the plaintiff (Vincent L. Greene, Esq. of Motley Rice LLC), counsel for a defendant (Mitchell R. Edwards, Esq. of Hinckley Allen), and the judge overseeing the Rhode Island matter (Honorable Richard A. Licht, R.I. Superior Court). It provides a balanced perspective as to the continuing health crisis, what transpired in these landmark cases and what may follow. This includes an overview of the rulings in Rhode Island and nationwide, specifically including the law of public nuisance, and how this may shape the legal landscape in the future.
