LINDSAY DIBLER TESTIFIES FOR THIRD CONSECUTIVE YEAR BEFORE MISSOURI HOUSE COMMITTEE

LINDSAY DIBLER TESTIFIES FOR THIRD CONSECUTIVE YEAR BEFORE MISSOURI HOUSE COMMITTEE

Kurowski Shultz Attorneys At Law


For the third consecutive year, Principal, Lindsay Dibler, testified before the Missouri House Special Committee on Litigation Reform in support of the Asbestos Bankruptcy Trust Transparency Bill (HB 1645).  The proposed legislation made it out of Committee the past two years, but has in the past stalled in the Missouri Senate.  House Bill 1645 is one of many tort reform proposals currently being considered this session.

 House Bill 1645 was introduced to provide fairness in the tort system and transparency of bankruptcy claims in the tort process.  The bill would require plaintiffs in asbestos cases to not only identify and provide trust claim documents and payment information, but also require plaintiffs to file such claims at the beginning of the tort process.
