The Ethics Board advises

(1) that a county board supervisor not participate in discussions or votes
      about litigation strategy or whether or not the county should sue a business
      with which the supervisor is associated and should absent himself or herself
      from that portion of a meeting at which the matter is discussed;

(2) that §19.59 is not an impediment to a county supervisor’s participation in
      decisions affecting the liability of a municipality of which the supervisor is an
      elected official, but considerations of incompatibility of office, which may be
      addressed by the Attorney General, may speak to abstention; and

(3) that §19.59 is not an impediment to a county supervisor’s participation in
      decisions affecting the financial interests of a child’s spouse, unless the child's
      family either receives one-half of their support from the supervisor or
      furnishes one-half of the supervisor’s support, but considerations of the
      appearance of impropriety may lead the supervisor to abstain.
