Keith Whitson Quoted on Asbestos Trust Funds

On June 19, 2005 by Schnader in Litigation

Schnader partner Keith Whitson was quoted in a June 19, 2005 article in The Pittsburgh Tribune Review, “Bill could spur trust fund to pay victims.”  The article discusses a Senate bill to create a $140 billion trust fund to compensate asbestos victims.  The bill was approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee last month.  The article states that the bill would put an end to the costly asbestos litigation.  “Asbestos litigation is almost an industry unto itself,” said Keith.
