Ohio high court: no market-share liability on lead paint



So far it's been the month Motley Rice would like to forget: on Wednesday the Ohio high court let stand a decision barring plaintiffs from suing former lead-paint manufacturers unless they can in fact identify who made the paint used in given structures. As with the Missouri Supreme Court's ruling last week, the ruling took ambitious "market-share" liability theories off the table (defendants' press release)(via Genova).

Separately, jury deliberations continue following three weeks of testimony in the city of Milwaukee's lead paint case.
