Maine Revised Statutes

§169. Restriction of attorney's representation prohibited

A settlement of litigation may not include a condition that an attorney representing a party in that litigation is not permitted to represent other persons who are similarly situated in a related action involving a party that the attorney opposed in the settled litigation. A condition not in compliance with this section is void and unenforceable as against public policy. [2001, c. 108, §1 (NEW).]
