The seamy underside of asbestos litigation

A Wall Street Journal editorial casts a not-so-favorable light on the antics of the plaintiffs' bar. While us defense lawyers may complain too much about plaintiffs' lawyers pulling dirty tricks, they usually aren't caught this badly. It's especially unflattering when you make the tobacco defense lawyers wear the white hats. Sadly, probably won't affect asbestos litigation now that almost all jurisdictions allow discovery of trust fund applications, but sometimes it's nice to catch the other side with its pants down.
