Asbestos frauds in the WSJ



The Wall Street Journal's Kimberly Strassel has a big article today on the tangle of lawyer deceit exposed when one defendant obtained court permission to delve into the (multiple, inconsistent) earlier claims brought on behalf of a single mesothelioma claimant, Harry Kananian.
