“We are hopeful and optimistic that the federal court will rule in favor of our client, and will permit those awaiting treatment to begin to receive that treatment as soon as possible,” said Doyle. “We are at a loss to understand how the Bangor City Council could have denied this approval in the face of the opioid epidemic plaguing Maine and the overwhelming evidence we presented.”
