New Era of Local Government Affirmative Litigation

Learn about the growing phenomenon of lawsuits brought by cities and counties seeking monetary recoveries for widespread harms allegedly traceable to claimed corporate misconduct, as well as the “rise in affirmative litigation by municipalities,” defined as proactive suits that seek to vindicate some public interest, not merely the municipality’s corporate interests. Understand the legal principles that justify such “public interest” litigation, the range of potential subject matters (such as the large-scale tobacco and opioid cases), potential limits for Illinois cities and villages, the mechanics of these suits, questions such as authority to pursue, local government affirmative litigation funding, theories of recovery, proving duty, causation and damages, etc.
