Newtown among towns in class action suit against Opioid manufacturers

Newtown was among the towns that signed onto a class action suit against the Opioid manufacturers and distributors in 2017.  Newtown received pro bono representation.  Globally, the settlement can be up to tens of billions, but First Selectman Dan Rosenthal recently told the Board of Selectmen and Legislative Council that it's unclear how much each municipality will receive.  Each town has to sign off on the settlement.  Newtown plans to direct the funds to drug education. Among the organizations that could benefit include, but are not limited to, Newtown Youth and Family Services, the Parent Connection and the Social Services Department.
