Asbestos bill update



MarketWatch has the latest rumors (via Friable). One main obstacle appears to be a lack of legislative time on the floor.

Meanwhile, in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, over 4000 asbestos cases were thrown out in one swoop by judges who deemed them fraudulent. Another 30,000 cases where there is no evidence of injury have been moved to an "inactive docket." (Thomas W. Gerdel, "Asbestos litigation cases cut", Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Apr. 5).
