California Supreme Court Takes A Stand in Favor of First Amendment in Mesothelioma and Asbestos Litigation
By: Chris Placitella @ Oct 04, 2011
Yesterday the California Supreme Court took a stand in favor of the First Amendment and overruled the trial court which ordered the plaintiff lawyer to take down her website during trial. The initial application was made by Volkswagen and later joined in by Ford, both of which are known for very aggressive litigation tactics in mesothelioma and asbestos death cases. This ruling is an important precedent for free speech.
