New Research from ILR Finds Asbestos Law in Ohio "Has Not Delayed" Justice

May 19, 2017

Ohio state legislative news service, Gongwer, wrote that a new study released by the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform (ILR), “found that law (H.B. 380, 129th General Assembly) has been effective at discouraging fraud and abuse without compromising the interests of plaintiffs.”

“A growing national chorus of states and Congress are working to discourage ‘double dip’ asbestos claims against bankruptcy trusts and in the tort system to preserve resources for future claimants,” said ILR President Lisa  Rickard. “As Ohio’s record bears out, fairness and transparency do not prevent legitimate victims from achieving justice.”
