Joseph R. Biden III



...is the son of the similarly-named Democratic senator from Delaware. The Madison County Record is reporting that the SimmonsCooper law firm (OL Dec. 1; Sep. 20; Sep. 28; OL Jan. 5, 2004) has affiliated itself with the 36-year-old's Delaware law firm in bringing asbestos lawsuits in Delaware, presumably because Madison County is no longer available as a blank-check venue (Jan. 3). (Steve Korris, "Delaware court seeing upsurge in asbestos filings", Jul. 1).

Update: Allen Adomite of ICJL has a much more detailed analysis of the situation that's a must-read.
