Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Wisconsin governor signs asbestos lawsuit bill

On March 27, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed the controversial asbestos lawsuit bill that is opposed by Democrats and victims of asbestos, an article from the Star Tribune stated.

According to spokeswoman Laurel Patrick, the new law will prevent the legal counsel of asbestos victims from “double dipping.” Under the new bill that was signed by Gov. Walker before he went to Las Vegas, those filing asbestos lawsuits must identify the companies that they will sue.

Supporters of the bill claimed the amendments were necessary to protect the asbestos trust funds from multiple claims filed by victims. On the other hand, democrats and veterans have criticized the asbestos bill because it may prevent asbestos victims from getting the justice and compensation they deserve.
