"Silicosis Claims Split the Plaintiffs Bar"



Reports American Lawyer: "The so-called phantom epidemic of silicosis has become a hot potato for the plaintiffs bar. ... [Judge Janis Graham Jack] has ordered defense lawyers to notify state courts that they may have received fraudulent asbestos claims." Mississippi defense lawyer Daniel Mulholland has compiled a list of plaintiffs who sued over both asbestosis and silicosis "and the lawyers who represented them in previous asbestos claims. The list, a who's-who of the Mississippi plaintiffs bar, includes its dean, Richard Scruggs, whose Scruggs Law Firm is based in Oxford, Miss."
