WSJ: Asbestos Fraud Sunshine

In an editorial titled, “Asbestos Fraud Sunshine,” the Wall Street Journal today highlights federal bankruptcy Judge George Hodges’ “bold step against asbestos litigation fraud,” namely his decision to unseal the evidence in the high-profile Garlock asbestos case.

In his decision, writes the Journal, Judge Hodges “detailed how the tort bar was essentially double-dipping—filing claims with outside asbestos trusts in which they blamed non-Garlock products for their diseases, even as they blamed Garlock in court.”

While the editorial notes that the evidence will be come within a month, “Sunshine is the best asbestos fraud disinfectant.”
