Silica Case Seen as Breakthrough

Are you a doctor who screens plaintiffs in mass tort cases for plaintiff's firms? Be careful because the Chamber of Commerce is coming for you.

Defense lawyers in asbestos litigation have long complained about these doctors for years but now it appears someone might be doing something about it. While it might be too late for asbestos, it might be useful in deterring questionable expert testimony in other new toxic tort claims. If this effort is useful in getting judges to put some teeth back into Daubert, it will be a good thing.
