OVERLAND PARK, KS - Our primary concern has been and will continue to be the welfare of our clients, who in the face of a deadly, worldwide pandemic cannot practice any of the safeguards medical professionals have recommended. Time is of the essence.

We appreciate the careful deliberation of the Court’s order that creates a path for statewide relief at the district court level by permitting consolidation.
 
We look forward to sharing our clients’ plight and what is at stake for them in this action.
