Asbestos Claims

President Bush said America must reform unnecessary lawsuits, including asbestos claims.

FACT: The president may want to rethink classifying asbestos claims as frivolous. The AP reports a Columbia, MD, corporation, W.R. Grace and Co., “knew a Montana mine was releasing cancer-causing asbestos into the air and tried to hide the danger to workers and townspeople.” According to federal prosecutors, “more than 1,200 people became ill, and some of them died.”
