Tucker on Torkelsen and silicosis

Author William Tucker, whose byline now identifies him as an associate at AEI, has an op-ed in the Bergen Record discussing the John Torkelsen affair and its relevance to the Milberg Weiss investigation (see Aug. 8; OL Oct. 10, Nov. 5) and also the silicosis scandal. Key quote on the former:

"Flipping Torkelsen would be the end of any semblance of order as we know it," one worried plaintiff attorney told The Recorder, a California legal daily.

Said another: "He knows where all the bodies are buried."

(via newish blog Stoneposts, by litigation paralegal David Stone in Houston, which has numerous recent pointers to asbestos and silicosis stories).
