Junk science in asbestos litigation
Over on Volokh Conspiracy, our friend David Bernstein has a post on junk science in asbestos litigation. Professor Bernstein cites to a study posted on Healthfactsandfears.com in which "plaintiffs' B-readers reported that 95.9% of 492 chest x-rays had possible asbestos-related lung damage, [but] unaffiliated doctors found that only 4.5% of them showed possible damage." Those who've read Professor Brickman's voluminous piece on the subject shouldn't be surprised.
