Illinois: bill would overturn "Lipke rule"



HB 4984, introduced into the Illinois General Assembly by Rep. David Reis (R-Jasper County), would allow defendants in asbestos cases to introduce evidence that a plaintiff had been exposed to asbestos products other than its own, thus reversing the notorious "Lipke rule" followed by many Illinois courts.
