"Ohio takes the lead on asbestos reform"

As David Owsiany notes in a short paper (PDF) for the Buckeye Institute, Ohio has gone a fair distance already toward asbestos reform by way of legislation restricting recovery to claimants with actual medical indications of disease. Now, amid an outcry over organized misdiagnosis and double-claiming, some advocates are hoping to take a further step: "Sen. Bill Seitz (R-Cincinnati) introduced legislation in the Ohio Senate that mandates any plaintiff bringing an asbestos tort action must disclose any previous claims he or she has filed with asbestos trusts."
