Judge Warns Upcoming Asbestos Trial Will Be A ‘Dreadful Experience’ Due To COVID And Urges Parties To Settle

In a notice issued July 21, First Circuit Judge Ronald E. Wilson warned those involved in an upcoming consolidated asbestos trial during COVID will be “a dreadful experience” and is urging parties to settle according to a report in Legal Newsline.

“Speaking of settlement, for those of you who have not experienced it, a trial with everyone wearing masks and jurors, attorneys, clients, witnesses and the judge all separated by six feet with the judge, the attorneys and the witness trying to communicate is a dreadful experience,” Wilson wrote. “If you’re going to settle – do it now and avoid this dreadful experience. If not, I have no choice but to make sure that the trials happen.”
