EPA Drops Plan For Asbestos Panel

After promising the folks in El Dorado that they'd form a panel to study the effects of naturally occurring asbestos, the EPA has changed its mind. Now, they're going to take some risk assessment tests. If I lived in El Dorado, I would not be happy about it but it's unlikely that a panel would prevent anyone from getting sick either. However, hire a lawyer and sue a whole bunch of folks, you just might get a whole bunch of "scientific" studies much quicker.

  • So who do you sue if it's naturally occurring asbestos?

  • I'm guessing God, though he has super-sovereign immunity. Otherwise, plaintiff's counsel haven't really pushed this yet. Perhaps various construction companies like homebuilders or grading contractors would be my guess though.

  • Amazing blog! I really enjoyed reading and hope you keep updating it frequently! I really liked the information on asbestos! I have my own asbestos blog if you would like to come and see what I have on mine! Also, may I put a link to this blog of yours on mine?
