Lead paint lawsuit news

The briefing in the Rhode Island appeal is scheduled: briefing for appeals and cross-appeals of the main judgment is due January 31, and oral argument will be May 15. Richard Faulk and John Gray have a good overview of the problems with the Rhode Island litigation for WLF.

In Ohio, a referendum effort to repeal the anti-market-share-liability bill appears to have failed to gather the signatures needed.

The industry appears to have its own website which, while not as comprehensive as it could be, includes a good deal of data on the status of various litigations.

And, of course, there is lots of Point of Law coverage and coverage at Legal Newsline. The Institute for Legal Reform also has a number of papers on the public-nuisance phenomenon, including an excellent Washburn Law Review article by Victor Schwartz and Phil Goldberg.
