  •  Oh, I agree (none)
    I represented one of those small companies that repackaged a product.  My company's product had something like less than 5% asbestos content, was rarely if ever used in an industrial context, and they got targeted because a lot of the big boys flip in and out of bankruptcy protection, and plaintiffs need pockets to sue to compensate them for their injuries.

    The asbestos tort system, as a whole is a huge mess.  A bill is needed...just not this one.

    The world is made for those who are not cursed with self-awareness. -- Annie Savoy, from "Bull Durham" Yeah, and George W. Bush is living proof.

    •  Sounds a whole lot (none)
      Like you got caught with Texas's system of designating a responsible third party that was passed during the 2003 tort deform campaign.
