Asbestos Exposed

Senior Fellow Dana Joel Gattuso has a great new Tech Central Station piece, Asbestos Exposed. Remember this money quote next time you see one of those tear-jerker asbestos commercials put on by the trial lawyer industry: “…as many as 90 percent of all asbestos claimants are without injury.”

Who benefits from this system? Lawyers. Those who genuinely are ill are finding the money pot empty, because too many lawyers love money more than they love justice.
