Sunday's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette covers CSX's lawsuit against Robert Peirce & Associates, a Pittsburgh law firm that allegedly engaged in fraudulent mass screenings as part of its strategy in asbestosis litigation, a subject covered in more detail in Lester Brickman's Lawyer Barons. Peirce recently dismissed with prejudice over 1300 lawsuits against CSX when the company made it clear they would actually put them to proof rather than engage in quick settlement.
