Richard Mirra and Steven Satz, both Of Counsel to the firm, authored an article titled “One More Time:  Another Take on the National Scene of the ‘Bare Metal Defense’ in Asbestos Litigation”.  It appears in the newsletter of the Defense Research Institute’s Toxic Torts and Environmental Law Committee.  It explores developments in asbestos litigation following a decision and written opinion filed by the Appellate Division of the New Jersey Superior Court in the Hughes case,  which was handled by Richard Mirra and Steven Satz of the firm.  The opinion constitutes the current state of the law on the subject, as it is the highest Court in New Jersey to weigh in on this issue in the field of toxic torts.
