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.

Says Joe:

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.
