Appeals court: bankruptcy no shield from asbestos liability

Section 524(g) of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code was set up to protect the rights of victims of asbestos-related illness should the asbestos manufacturers who injured them go bankrupt. If asbestos claims didn’t survive bankruptcy, companies who produced dangerous products or negligently exposed their workers to lethal cancers could have shed those debt through periodic reorganization.

Study: firefighters' mesothelioma risk twice the national average

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, or NIOSH, just completed a major study on the risk faced by firefighters of contracting mesothelioma and other cancers.

And, for the first time, the study documented the long-suspected increased risk of mesothelioma among firefighters.

Gogebic Taconite, a subsidiary of Cline Resource and Development Group, has made preliminary steps toward the development of a $1.5-billion taconite, or iron ore, mine near Ashland, Wisconsin. The project had already sparked controversy over its possible environmental impact, because the local geology suggests the presence of sulfide rock. If released into local streams and wetlands, opponents say, it could harm waterways and downstream habitats.

Gori Julian & Associates recently filed a lawsuit against 65 companies on behalf of an Illinois couple. The husband believes he developed asbestos lung cancer through exposure to the deadly fiber through a number of different products over the course of his 37-year career.
