Attorney Tim Shannon Represents Senator Brownie Carson in Lawsuit Against LePage Administration
Verrill Dana attorney Tim Shannon's pro bono lawsuit against the Maine Department of Health and Human Services concerning its refusal to hire public health nurses – to provide home visits to at-risk mothers and infants – is highlighted in a Bangor Daily News article published on July 30, 2018 entitled "LePage Didn't Hire Nurses as New Law Ordered. Now He's Being Sued." The suit contends the LePage administration violated a law requiring greater nurse staffing. In the article, Tim is quoted about the unique nature of the case, stating, "This is really about the rule of law. Everyone has to follow the law, even the laws they don't like. Even this administration."
