Mo. high court rejects St. Louis lead-paint suit



The settled requirement for product identification in a liability suit is enough to sink the city's nuisance action, rules the state's highest court by a 4-3 margin. Defendants say that lead-paint-as-nuisance suits have now been rejected in both the states that have reached a final adjudication on the issue, the other being Illinois. Coverage: St. Louis Post-Dispatch, AP, Legal NewsLine, Jane Genova quoting attorney Richard Faulk (and scroll for other posts).
