Betz v. Pneumo Abex

Date: August 11, 2011

Pennsylvania Supreme Court

The case involves a key issue in asbestos litigation today - the "any exposure" theory of causation.  The PA Superior Court authored one of the more thoughtful opinions explaining why this theory being promoted by paid experts for plaintiffs is "junk science."  The appellate court reversed.  The appeal to the PA Supreme Court asks the court to reinstate the Superior Court opinion.

Status: DECIDED. Amicus brief filed 4/22/11. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court reversed the grant of summary judgment to brake manufacturers.
