Consider approval of Resolution 2021-261R, authorizing the submission of a Subdivision Participation Form to the Office of the Attorney General of the State of Texas to secure the
City’s participation in a class action lawsuit against multiple opioid distributers and manufacturers before the deadline of January 2, 2022; authorizing the City Manager or his
designee to execute all documents necessary related to signing on to the class action lawsuit; and declaring an effective date.

Does accepting the settlement absolve the company of all future liability? Would not signing on allow us to pursue more substantive claims in the future or an agreement which causes Johnson and Johnson to accept wrongdoing?

The attached document labeled “Exhibit E” describes in detail the many allowable uses for these funds. Thank you!
