Texas Asbestos/Silica Cases Dismissed Absent Expert Medical Report

Texas Asbestos/Silica Cases Dismissed Absent Expert Medical Report

The Texas Supreme Court won't review an MDL court's dismissal of more than 1,000 asbestos and silica lawsuits.  Under Texas tort reform measures, asbestos cases lingering on the inactive MDL docket were required to file medical reports showing an asbestos-related disease.  Some 5,000 asbestos and silica liability cases are now at risk for dismissal after expiration of the deadline.
