Washington Supreme Court Restricts Asbestos Claims
The Washington Supreme Court has taken a step back in time and rendered two significant decisions limiting he rights of asbestos victims to gain recovery. The Court ruled that if a company did not make asbestos products or manufacture them there was no duty to war. Speaking for the minority, Justice Debra Stephens wrote, "no duty to warn of a serious hazard it knew or should have known was involved in the use of its product ignores logic, common sense, and justice."
