Lawsuit Lending On Trial in Georgia

The California Supreme Court last week declined to hear an appeal of a landmark ruling that held paint manufactures liable for lead paint removal, The Recorder reports.

Last November, the Sixth District Court of Appeals ruled that major manufactures “must have known” of the dangers of lead paint and upheld a $1.15 billion judgment. The ruling deviated from other nationwide decisions. Similar lawsuits, which alleged that the paint was a “public nuisance,” were dismissed in seven other states.

Representatives from the companies said they plan to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
