Toxic Tort Newsletter - Spring 2007, Vol. 6 Issue 2
Despite the fact that there have been numerous defense verdicts in welding rod litigation over the past 15 years, the cases continue to be filed. In this edition of the Toxic Tort Newsletter, we examine the status of the litigation, the related epidemiology and the future of the litigation.
One of the more difficult parts of the defense in mass tort litigation is the preparation and presentation of the corporate representative for deposition. The results can be disasterous if the witness is not properly prepared before subjecting himself/herself to the attack the plaintiff´s counsel will conduct at the deposition. We explain the care that should be taken during this phase of this discovery.
