21 Aug 2004 Asbestos Scandal
Joe Perkins has a harsh yet informative op-ed in the San Diego Union-Tribune this week about asbestos litigation. Asbestos litigation is a topic that makes people turn away because they think it sounds boring…
…which is what those who are enriching themselves through it are counting upon.
It is, arguably, the biggest racket in American history – asbestos litigation.
It is bigger than bootlegging during the Prohibition era.
Bigger than cocaine trafficking during the drug-addled 1970s.
Bigger than securities fraud during the get-rich-quick 1990s.
Read the rest. You won’t be bored. I promise.
