ADAO sounds an urgent warning about the asbestos FACT Act

The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization, an independent organization providing education and advocacy for the elimination of asbestos-related diseases including mesothelioma, is sounding the alarm about the proposed federal Furthering Asbestos Claim Transparency Act, or FACT Act, which has been before Congress since 2012 but is still in active consideration.

Maryland high court denies GP's liability for family mesothelioma

The State of Maryland’s highest court ruled recently that Georgia-Pacific Corp. does not have to pay a woman who lost a lung to mesothelioma the $5 million a lower court had ordered. Why? Although the asbestos that sickened her was clearly from Georgia-Pacific products, her exposure was second-hand and took place in the 1960s, before the full danger of second-hand exposure was confirmed, the court said. Therefore, she had no legitimate product liability claim against the corporate giant.
