Asbestos mass screening: live by the lawsuit, perish by the lawsuit?



A new RICO suit in the name of National Service Industries targets Ray Harron and various others involved in mass x-ray screening for (the suit alleges) "fabricating bogus 'medical evidence' for asbestos litigation claims." [(U.S. Chamber-backed) Legal NewsLine, West Virginia Record, and Madison County Record] Separately, as Beck & Herrmann relate, an MDL court has declined lawyers' request to quash defendants' subpoenae "for documents from doctors who had purported to diagnose asbestos-related conditions in probably thousands of plaintiffs."

Discovery in cases like these could reveal a lot about what goes on in the industry of mass-diagnosing asbestos illness in seemingly unimpaired plaintiffs.
