The St. Louis Dispatch recently covered a conference focusing on class action suits and asbestos-related litigation in Madison County. The conference was organized by Washington Univeristy’s Trial and Advocacy Program, the Journal of Law and Policy and the Coalition for Litigation Justice.
Griffin B. Bell, a former US attorney general said places such as Madison County, which has a growing reputation for large judgments against defendants, bring a "stain on our system."
Bell was taken by Plaintiff’s trial lawyers who noted Bell works at a law firm whose clients include asbestos defendants. They accused Bell of shilling for corporate America.
