The METO Settlement
Shamus O'Meara: Introduction
Shamus O'Meara: I'm Shamus O'Meara. I'm a partner here at Johnson & Condon. We're a law firm in Edina. My role with regard to the METO lawsuit I serve as lead counsel for the settlement class. This case involved a federal lawsuit that has resulted in a federal class action settlement. Our firm has been appointed as settlement class counsel, so it's in that capacity that I serve the three families that were named in the lawsuit originally, and then approximately three hundred families whose loved ones experienced restraint or seclusion while at the METO facility.
